“Sinners Made Righteous; Self-righteous Remain Sinners”

Matthew 9:9-17

I. Sinners who follow Jesus in faith are made righteous, but the self-righteous who reject Jesus remain sinners* (Matthew 9:9-13).

II. King Jesus has come, and His disciples will serve under a new covenant (Matthew 9:14-17).

Main Idea: Self-righteous people miss Jesus’ mission: to save sinners!
