Luke 5:33-39

God’s kingdom is present in Jesus. The old patterns of religion cannot contain Christ’s new ways. So it is when Jesus is present. The bridegroom of God’s kingdom is present in him. This is the time to feast on God’s grace. We might believe that sin is incompatible with God’s kingdom and surely that is true. Yet it is truer to say that sin is so incompatible that it is now forgiven. Sinners are not banished. They are welcomed and fed.
