What Jesus Did and How He Did It: "Unshaped by Religion" 
Luke 5:29-6:11 
Jesus refuses to be shaped by religion or defined by anything except his father 

1. Jesus eats with sinners and tax collectors 
~guilt by association 
~Levi should have been in the ministry but had abandoned his heritage and 
become a tax collector but when Christ says "follow me" he follows. 
~Jesus came to heal the sick, save the sinners. The healthy don't need a Doctor. 
Discretion is the better part of valor..... Not in Jesus' world. He didn't worry 
about what others thought. 
2. Jesus does not require his followers to practice fasting 
He is lord of the sabbath. He is proclaiming his authority over one of the Ten 
Commandments. When you don't feel God is near, fasting will help you 
reconnect.when god is near, celebrate. 
3. Jesus works and allows his disciples to work on the sabbath. 
-"harvesting" on the sabbath 
- healing on the sabbath. 
If you want to know what God is like, what the sabbath is about, look to Jesus. 
The sabbath is not for God, it's for man. God doesn't get tired, you do, it's 
supposed to make your life better and let you reconnect and rejuvenate.
