A LESSON FROM THE LIFE OF ZACCHEUS (I) Dr D.K. Olukoya


FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 19:1-10

PRAISE & WORSHIP


MESSAGE: 

The Bible gives an interesting story of a man called Zaccheus, a former tax collector and in every way a sinner. Having realised his sinful state, one day, he decided to see Jesus. Zaccheus wasn't a poor man; so he was not seeking Jesus for bread, neither for fun or sheer curiosity as many people would do at that time, even today. Rather, his desire was to have an encounter with the Saviour, such that it would have an eternal impact on his life. He received his heart desire with faith. He did not only think or conceive an idea, he went further to take a risk. He put his faith into action by doing the uncommon to receive divine response.


His story changed because Jesus located him on the Sycamore tree which he climbed. It was a divine attention! How did Jesus know that he was up there? It was the appointed time for his salvation. Rightly positioned, there was a divine connect between Jesus and Zaccheus. Jesus got to where he was and looked up. I pray that you shall be divinely located, in the name of Jesus.


Are you in frantic need to see Jesus? Decide to do something beyond the ordinary to get an extraordinary result. Zaccheus was not limited in his thoughts, neither was he discouraged because of his short stature. He wasn't ready to settle for self-pity and unwarranted excuses...."I would have seen Him if not for my stature." Neither did he say, "I won't bother to stress myself in the crowd. Oh! Poor me, why am I like this!" He refused to settle for less than his miracle of salvation. Jesus knew the heart of men and could see the sincerity of his mind. He addressed Zaccheus directly, "Today, salvation has come to your house."


Brother, Jesus sees and knows you. Sister, Jesus desires that you go an extra mile to show how much you want Him in your life. As he willingly went in to Zaccheus, He is willing to enter your house too. He will dine with you. Open the door of your heart to Him. Don't shut Him out. I pray that His mercy will prevail over judgement in your life, in the name of Jesus.
