Renegade Banquet 08 Sep

(Message 6) Does your religion get in the way of a relationship with Jesus? When Jesus was invited to a religious man’s house for a banquet. He noticed everyone was preoccupied with their religious position and importance. In response He told a story of different banquet, a renegade banquet for those more interested in God, than their religious position. #GCRenegade
