Title: To Be Seen by Jesus
Text: Luke 19:5
Thought for the Day:
It’s not so surprising that Zacchaeus wanted to see Jesus. After all, Jesus is the Son of God, the Messiah, the man whose fame had spread throughout the land. This is the Jesus who heals diseases, casts out demons and teaches with such spiritual authority that crowds are amazed.
What is surprising is that Jesus wants to see Zacchaeus, calling him by name and insisting that He not only wants to speak to Zacchaeus, but that He muststay at Zacchaeus’s home that day. Remarkable! Jesus, on His way to the cross, stops to spend time with a non-descript, disliked man. What is Jesus thinking?
Pray through this Thought for the Day as the Spirit leads you in your heart and in your mind. Amen.
