Bible Passage: Luke 7:36-50

Hospitality and welcome are the themes of this sermon, explored through this famous story that takes place around a meal. Jesus demonstrates the impact of grace on our lives through contrasting the Simon the Pharisee and a woman whose name is not given but is described as one who had lived a sinful life and who had “great love.” Simon is inhospitable, the woman generous and free. How does the gospel impact our view of one another and mobilize us to open our lives and homes to others?
