Jesus welcomed outcasts and the outcasts welcomed Him. They listened to His stories and responded. Meanwhile, the Pharisees grumbled at Jesus’ teaching. We see in Luke 15 that the religious leaders were out of sync with heaven. Jesus tells a story of a lost sheep and a lost coin and the joy that is experienced when these items are found. This joy is but a taste of the joy experienced when a lost sinner repents. All of heaven celebrates when sinners repent!
