Read: Luke 19:1-10
When Jesus came to Jericho, he came to seek the lost. He found Zaccaeus, a jewish tax collector who worked for the Roman government. He cheated his fellow Jews out of money and kept any above what caesar asked for.
Jesus asked Zaccaeus to come down fron the sycamore tree he climbed, for he was to host Jesus. This confused many of the religious people of Jericho. They grumbled and asked why Jesus would go to the home of a sinner.
Zaccaeus told Jesus he would give half of possessions to the poor and pay those he had cheated back 4 times as much.
Jesus explains that he did not come into the world to condemn the lost, but to save them.
How do we spend our time? Do we surround ourselves only with fellow believers? That is the natural thing to do, but God is supernatural. We should strive to seek the lost and share The Gospel with them. Whom will share Jesus with and allow Him to save?
Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house.”
