CHRIST’S PRIMARY MISSION

OBSERVATION: ZACCHEUS (MEANING PURE OR CLEAN) WAS A WEALTHY JEWISH CHIEF TAX COLLECTOR FOR THE ROMANS. JESUS ENTERED JERICHO AND ZACCHEUS, OUT OF CURIOSITY, CLIMBED A TREE TO GAIN A BETTER VIEW OF JESUS AND HEAR WHAT HE HAD TO SAY.

INTERPRETATION: LUKE 19: 9-10 (NKJV) AND JESUS SAID TO HIM, TODAY SALVATION HAS COME TO THIS HOUSE, BECAUSE HE ALSO IS A SON OF ABRAHAM; FOR THE SON OF MAN HAS COME TO SEEK AND TO SAVE THAT WHICH WAS LOST. LUKE 19: 9 (AMPLIFIED BIBLE) AND JESUS SAID TO HIM, TODAY IS (MESSIANIC AND SPIRITUAL) SALVATION COME TO (ALL OF THE MEMBERS OF) THIS HOUSEHOLD, SINCE ZACCHEUS TOO IS A (REAL SPIRITUAL) SON OF ABRAHAM,

THOUGHTS TO PONDER:

ZACCHEUS’ CURIOSITY AROSE: HE JUST HAD TO HEAR THIS JESUS MAN AND QUICKLY DISCOVERED JESUS WAS NO ORDINARY MAN.

ZACCHEUS’ CURIOSITY VANISHED: LUKE 10:5 (NASB) ZACCHEUS, HURRY AND COME DOWN, FOR TODAY, I MUST STAY AT YOUR HOUSE. NOTICE THE URGENCY JESUS SPOKE. ZACCHEUS HAD NO CLUE THIS COMMAND WOULD BE A LIFE CHANGER. IT ALSO RINGS OUT AN OUTCRY FROM THE JEWISH COMMUNITY BECAUSE OF ZACCHEUS’ FRAUD.

THE JEWISH COMMUNITY DID NOT BELIEVE HE COULD BE A SON OF ABRAHAM BECAUSE HE WAS A TAX COLLECTOR FOR THE ROMANS. THIS WAS NOT A VALID REASON FOR HIM TO BE CUT OFF FROM SALVATION. CHRIST CAME TO SAVE THOSE WHO ARE LOST, INCLUDING ZACCHEUS. HE TRULY WAS A SON OF ABRAHAM, AND GENUINE BELIEVER. HE RESTORED ALL HE HAD STOLEN AND MORE!

APPLICATION: SALVATION CAME TO ZACCHEUS’ HOUSE. CHRIST’S PRIMARY MISSION WAS TO SAVE THE LOST!
