Thinking about Zacchaeus: Wednesday

“And immediately he recovered his sight and followed him.” (18:43)

When Jesus went to eat at Zacchaeus’ house, he was accompanied by at least a small group of people. One member of that group had been a starving blind beggar at the gates of Jericho. He was invited into not just relationship with Jesus but also with his fellow believer, Zacchaeus. The faith in Christ was immediately a shared faith. The only commonality Zacchaeus and the blind man had was Jesus. And that was enough.

Prayer:

Father, I might not have a lot in common with my fellow believers, but having you in common is enough. Help me to be a peacemaker among my brothers and sisters in the faith.
