Thinking about Zacchaeus: Monday

“a guest of a man who is a sinner…” (v 7)

There is no way to purchase a guest room for Jesus. Despite Zacchaeus’ wealth, the only way Jesus came to stay at Zacchaeus’ house was that Jesus invited himself. That does not, however, mean that Zacchaeus’ willingness to receive the Savior was diminished. He climbed the tree. If he hadn’t, Jesus would have passed by.

His relationship with Jesus began at the intersection of Zacchaeus’ desire and Jesus’ intention.

Prayer:

Are there trees you need to climb? Obstacles between you and Jesus? Pray to Him today, asking for the strength to overcome the obstacles and meet Him.
