Lesson 109: Zacchaeus-- The Seeker Who was Sought (Luke 19:1-10)Related Media
It probably wasn’t easy being Zacchaeus. Even today, we’ve pretty much emasculated the guy through teaching our kids to sing about him being a “wee little man.” It may have been hard for him to get noticed, so he made his mark by taking advantage of his own people through rising to the low position of chief tax collector. But apparently, even having grown rich through his shady profession, he knew there was more to be had than money. This pull in his heart made catching a glimpse of Jesus worth climbing a tree like a child. Through this account Pastor Daniel challenges us to 1) Be encouraged as you seek God, 2) Don’t make excuses for rebellion, 3) Use dissatisfaction with life wisely, 4) Truly repent, 5) Trust in Christ, and 6) Gain assurance.
