"This man receiveth sinners!"

(spoken scornfully, in disdain)



(spoken joyfully, in relief)


where man had failed me God proved faithful

where man had judged and closed the door

Jesus welcomed me into His home

where man had rejected me

Jesus received me

and that has made all the difference


this fact is most sure

He is still receiving sinners

would to God sinners would receive Him



Quote at beginning of poem from Luke 15:2.
