Zacchaeus

Administrative Wing Copier-20160503132918Jesus traveled to Jericho. In that city was a wealthy tax collector named Zacchaeus. He had heard about Jesus and wanted to see him.

Our Bible verses tell us that there “were many others who wanted to see Jesus too. Zacchaeus was too short to see above the people” (verse 3b). What did Zacchaeus do? He climbed a sycamore tree so he could see Jesus.

As Jesus was passing by, He saw Zacchaeus and said, “Zacchaeus, hurry! Come down! I must stay at your house today” (verse 5b). Zacchaeus was happy to have Jesus come to his home. That day Zacchaeus decided that he wanted to start doing good things for God.

Jesus knew Zacchaeus’ name. God loves each one of us and knows our names, too. He wants us to fellowship with Him every day. I hope you will be like Zacchaeus and open your heart to God today!
