Sermon Notes

Unlike John the Baptist, Peter, Mary Magdalene, or Zacchaeus, the Pharisees were accepted by society but outcasts of the kingdom.  They stood on the fringes of salvation choosing to live in hypocrisy and legalism rather than placing their trust in the Christ.  As the enemies of the Gospel, it was much less likely to see a Pharisee become a follower of Jesus than the most evil and vile of sinners.  And, yet still, some became disciples.  No matter how bad you may have been or how warped your worldview has seemed, all may come to Christ if they are willing to change.
