When Jesus speaks, what is He like?

“Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear Him.” -Luke 15:1

How striking that the down-and-outs and outcasts of society were coming to Jesus not just because of the miracles (like many), but to “hear Him”.  Something in His way and His words drew them in for more.

I must imagine that it was love.

Most people aren’t looking for high-minded philosophy or theological answers.  They just want to have a sense of purpose and direction for their lives.  They just want to know that things will be okay.

Jesus doesn’t shrink from telling the truth, but people are drawn to Him because He always offers it in love.

Do we?
