We keep trying to clean him up

Jesus that is. We keep trying to clean him up. Clean white robes, nicely cropped beard, pearly white teeth, you get the idea. Oh, and he doesn't like sinners.

Really? Stop. Over and over again, Jesus is found running with sinners. In Luke 7:34 he says, The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’

Jesus reputation was that he was a friend of sinners. He ran with sinners. Not repentant sinners, sinners. Jesus didn't insist that people clean up before he loved them.  We should not either.

It's a beautiful day in God's world be sure to see the good.
