Your House, Our House, His House

Thinking about Zacchaeus: Tuesday

“when Jesus came to the place” (5)

We share space with Jesus and a whole bunch of other people. Sometimes we forget that faith is meant to be public. It is shared with those who share it, but it is also supposed to be a publicly shared thing. Faith is not supposed to be hidden or “just between me and God.”

Zacchaeus was an open person, apparently. He did what he felt was right whenever and wherever he was. He is defined by his actions more than by his words, isn’t he?


Jesus, I want my actions to speak your gospel to both my fellow believers and to those outside the faith. Guide my hands and heart into actions that praise you, so that when I speak, my words only confirm what I have already been doing.
