Not long after Jesus called Matthew to be a follower of His, Matthew
threw a party. He invited his tax collecting friends who were not held
in very high esteem by the community and were far from God. Matthew
invited them to come and meet Jesus. It was an interesting way to
introduce people who needed a relationship with Jesus to who Jesus was.
“Matthew Parties” are non-threatening, fun get-togethers planned for
friends, family members, and/or acquaintances who are in need of a
relationship with Jesus. These parties offer an opportunity to meet
Christians in a relaxed environment. There is no formal presentation of
the gospel. Instead, spiritual conversations are likely to just happen
comfortably and naturally.
Matthew 9:10“While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples.”
