Zacchaeus



April 23

Daily Bible Reading: Luke 19:1 – 28

Verse of the Day: Luke 19:9 – 10 – “And Jesus said unto him, To-day is salvation come to this house, forasmuch as he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man came to seek and to save that which was lost.”

The biblical account of Zacchaeus, a story often taught in Sunday School. We have a children’s song about this “wee little man.” 

The focus we are considering today is about a tax-collector (sinner) that was curious about this Jesus of Nazareth. He climbed a tree to get a look at this one who was causing such a stir. Jesus starts the interaction when He looks up and speaks to Zacchaeus. He is doing what He says in our verse today, seeking the lost.

Maybe today God will place someone in our path that is curious. That Jesus is seeking. When God opens these doors, do we share about Him? Because, not only does He seek, He saves. Maybe He will use us to lead someone to Him.

Prayer; Jesus, give me eyes to see Your open doors to share with others. Amen.
