Incarnational Living

He touches the contagious (Luke 5:12-16); befriends the marginalized (Luke 5:17-26); spends time with social outcasts (Luke 5:27-30); recognizes the elderly, handicapped, poor, orphaned, and widowed. He restores those who know they have a need and drops the A-bomb on those who defiantly reject him (Luke 5:31-32). He restores the self-made man who recognized the need for God while rejecting the self-made man who perceives no need for God. This enables Him to passionately pursue those who know they have a need for someone greater than themselves.

Who is contagious, marginalized, and outcast in American society? For church to be incarnational, we must passionately pursue those who know they have a need and are looking to be restored. The church has more to offer than any government agency or social injustice group.

How will the church pursue those who Jesus pursued?
