LUKE 19 VS 1-10
Luke 19:1-10 (NKJV)
1 Then Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.
2 Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich.
3 And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature.
4 So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way.
5 And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, "Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house."
6 So he made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully.
7 But when they saw it, they all complained, saying, "He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner."
8 Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, "Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold."
9 And Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham;
10 for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost."
*SUPPOSE YOU KNEW THAT THIS WAS THE LAST DAY THAT YOU WERE TO LIVE ON THIS EARTH, WOULD THERE BE ANYTHING THAT YOU WOULD NEED TO CHANGE??
**THIS WAS THE LAST TIME THAT JESUS WAS TO GO THROUGH JERICHO, PERHAPS THE LAST TIME THAT ZACCHAEUS WOULD HAVE TO RESPOND TO THE GOSPEL- TODAY MAY BE THE LAST TIME WE GET ON THIS SIDE TO DO WHAT WE NEED TO DO TO BE PREPARED TO MEET OUR GOD!! WE NEVER KNOW- ZACCHAEUS DIDN’T KNOW, BUT HE DID THE RIGHT THING- WILL YOU??
