A Wee Little Man Was He
Luke 19


Zacchaeus, the hated tax collector, wanted to see Jesus but could not because he couldn't see over the crowd. So, he climbed up in a sycamore tree so he could see Jesus. Jesus sees Zacchaeus and invites himself over for dinner.

Zacchaeus went to great lengths to see the Jesus. Maybe he heard of Jesus' miracles or maybe he heard the commotion in town and wanted to see what the fuss was about. Whatever his reason, this short little man went to the trouble of climbing high in a sycamore tree to see Jesus. Whether out of simple curiosity or skepticism he pursued the Lord Jesus Christ and made himself available. The bible says that when we seek the Lord with all our heart, we will find him.

When Zacchaeus met Jesus, he could not stay the same. Regardless of Zacchaeus' sinful lifestyle and the baggage attached, Jesus called out to him, and claimed him as His own. A perfect Lord was ready to accept an imperfect man. The choice was then up to Zacchaeus. Should he act and come down, or stay in the tree and remain in bondage? Zacchaeus opened his heart and jumped down, running towards Jesus' open, accepting arms.

Maybe you're questioning this thing called Christianity right now. Perhaps you're skeptical or simply curious. You're watching from a distance trying to understand what Jesus is all about. He's there; ready to have an active, intimate relationship with you. Don't watch from a distance but jump and run towards Him. He will no doubt accept you with open arms!

Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.

    God's truth is black and white and even though there is no gray area, that's where so many of us live today. We prefer to live by the concepts or facts we wish to be true, rather than those known to be true...the gray area. Join us as we learn to navigate the space between True and True(ish). This series starts May 19.
Last Sunday:
  Yesterday we honored our mothers. We saw from Proverbs 31 the qualities of a Godly mother.
  Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our website, just under the calendar, or by visiting us on iTunes.
