Let’s go out to Jesus like Zacchaeus

The Bible has many stories that can excite us, increase our faith and let us know what our legacy really is. When we see those New Testament stories like the centurion, the man with the dry hand, etc., we really reflect a lot. Today we will talk a little about Zacchaeus, how this man came to Jesus at any cost.

The story of Zacchaeus is well known, possibly even by non-Christian people. Almost everyone knows that he was short, we also know he was a tax collector, so he was very rich.

Jesus had arrived in Jericho and there was a large crowd around Him, and this meant that Zacchaeus who was short could not see Him, and here is part of the impressiveness of this story:

And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.

Luke 19:4

Zacchaeus looked to the impossible to see Jesus, but the most impressive thing is not this, but Zacchaeus never imagined that Jesus was also thinking of him:

And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.

Luke 19:5

Jesus is always looking, always calling, even He being the most important being in the entire universe, yet He decides to look for us, decides to love us, and believe me, Zacchaeus did not deserve that Jesus put His gaze on him, in the same way that you and I don’t deserve it either, but that’s our God, He loves us even if we are sinners.

And a great sign that God had done a powerful work in the heart of Zacchaeus is when this story ends as follows:

8 Entonces Zaqueo, puesto en pie, dijo al Señor: He aquí, Señor, la mitad de mis bienes doy a los pobres; y si en algo he defraudado a alguno, se lo devuelvo cuadruplicado.

9 Jesús le dijo: Hoy ha venido la salvación a esta casa; por cuanto él también es hijo de Abraham.

10 Porque el Hijo del Hombre vino a buscar y a salvar lo que se había perdido.

Luke 19:8-10

Oh, that Jesus enters and dwells with us in the same way as with Zacchaeus and that we can see His perfected work in our hearts, in such a way that we wish Him.
