MATTHEW, THE TAX COLLECTOR. / MATTHÉÜS, DIE TOLLENAAR.

Sunday 1 March 2015. 
WORD OF THE DAY:
[Psalm 107:19-21]
19. Then they cry to the Lord in their trouble, and He delivers them out of their distresses. 
20. He sends forth His Word and heals them; and rescues them from the pit and destruction. 
21. Oh, that men would praise (and confess to) the Lord for His goodness and loving-kindness, and His wonderful works to the children of men! 

MESSAGE OF THE DAY:
MATTHEW, THE TAX COLLECTOR:
1. English - (Amplified Bible Version))
[Luke 5:27-32]
27. And after this, Jesus went out and looked (attentively) at a tax collector named Levi, sitting at the tax office; and He said to him: "Join Me as disciple and side with My party and accompany Me."
28. And he forsook everything and got up and followed Him, (becoming His disciple and siding with His party). 
29. And Levi (Matthew), made a great banquet for Him in his own house, and there was a large company of tax collectors and others who were reclining (at the table) with them. 
30. Now the Pharisees and their scribes were grumbling against Jesus' disciples saying: "Why are you eating and drinking with tax collectors and (preeminently) sinful people?
31. And Jesus replied to them: "It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick. 
32. "I have not come to arouse and invite and call the righteous, but the erring ones (those not free from sin) to repentance (to change their minds for the better and heartily to amend their ways with abhorrence of their past sins.) 

Sondag 1 Maart 2015. 
WOORD VAN DIE DAG:
[Psalm 107:19-21]
19. Toe het hulle die Here aangeroep in hul benoudheid; uit hul angste het Hy hulle verlos. 
20. Hy het Sy Woord uitgestuur, dat Hy hulle kon gesond maak, en hulle uit hul kuile red. 
21. Laat hulle die HERE loof om Sy goedertierenheid en om Sy wonderdade aan die mensekinders. 

BOODSKAP VAN DIE DAG:
[Lukas 5:27-32]
27. En ná hierdie dinge het Hy uitgegaan, en 'n tollenaar met die naam van Levi by die tolhuis sien sit, en vir hom gesê: "Volg My."
28. En hy het alles verlaat en opgestaan en Hom gevolg. 
29. En Levi (Matthéüs) het 'n groot feesmaal vir Hom in sy huis gegee; en daar was 'n groot menigte van tollenaars en ander wat saam met hulle aan tafel was. 
30. En hulle skrifgeleerdes en die Fariseërs het by Sy dissipels gemurmureer en gesê: "Waarom eet en drink julle saam met die tollenaars en sondaars?"
31. En Jesus antwoord en sê vir hulle: "Die wat gesond is, het die geneesheer nie nodig nie, maar die wat ongesteld is. 
32. "Ek het nie gekom om regverdiges te roep nie, maar sondaars tot bekering."

(God willing and by His marvellous grace and mercy, I will share the Word with you as often as I possibly can. / 
As dit die wil van God is en deur Sy wonderbare genade en barmhartigheid, sal ek die Woord met u deel so dikwels as wat ek moontlik kan.)
