Jesus did more than hang out with tax collectors and sinners; He attracted them. Mark 2:15 says there were many of them (sinners) and they were following Jesus. Wow, how many times does this happen for me. Those who are sinners following me and wanting to hang out. It is another whole step from me just finding people and befriending them. It is actually being attractive in my words and lifestyle while maintaining the truth of my convictions. As followers, of Christ we were designed to go to the "sick" and the "sinners," and moreover, we are supposed to be so attractive that they are compelled to follow who we follow.
Have you lost your attraction? How do you get that back?
