Luke 5:27-32 | The Call of Christ

Andrew Arthur

Speaker: Andrew Arthur

Sermon Summary:

“Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” The religious persons of the day asked Jesus this question, and it’s still a question to be asked today. As we explore Luke 5:27-32, may we identify with those Jesus calls upon, understand Jesus’ calling and respond to the call for the Church.
