The Son of Man Came to Seek and to Save the Lost
Luke 19: 10
Sunday we’ll read in the 19th chapter of Luke’s gospel the account of Zacchaeus meeting Jesus. Oddly enough, the story involves Zacchaeus climbing a tree.
Jesus is passing through Jericho deliberatively, diligently making his way to the cross. Zacchaeus doesn’t know about that, but he’s heard a lot about Jesus and (like others in the gathering crowds) he’s excited and anxious.
What happens is truly priceless!
Zacchaeus is a wealthy tax collector, a chief tax collector at that. Tax collectors are despised because more times than not, they’re corrupt.
So to the predisposed people of Jericho, Zacchaeus is detestable; but to Jesus, Zacchaeus is another lost child of God, a precious redeemable soul.
There’s a hopeful lesson for all of us in this story, that is, providing we’re willing to climb a tree…..
See you Sunday!
