The Pharisee and the Tax Collector

From Series: The Gospel According to Luke, Volume 8

Luke 18:9 (ID: 2253)

Who is nearer to the kingdom of God: an upright, lifelong churchgoer or a despised, outcast sinner? Alistair Begg helps us see how shocking Jesus’ answer to this question was to its original hearers—especially for those who trusted in their own righteousness. Self-righteous, legalistic obedience can never save us, but God's mercy can rescue even the worst sinner who comes to Him in humility and brokenness.
