Luke 19:10 – “The Son of Man came to find lost people and save them.”
Read the entire 19th chapter in your spare time.
Luke 15:10 delcares – “In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
God is callng us to a personal relationship with Hm. Today is your day! Jesus declares in Luke 19:10 that He came for the sick that need a physician, for he said that the well does not need a physician, only the sick. I too, at one time in my life was very sick from sin. Jesus found me and I am no longer the same! I am saved by the blood of Jesus Christ and am set free from the penalty of sin and death! You can be too!
Everyone of us fit into one of two catagories on today. Either we were in bondage to sin and is now free in Christ Jesus or we are still bound by the bondage of sin and it’s penalty.
Jesus stoping at your house on today via this blog is a part of His divine mission! ARE YOU LOST? JESUS SAVES!
Tax collector were hated and despised by the people of that day. Of course, with their attitude towards tax collectors in general and Zacchaeus in particular, the crowd of people did not like what Jesus was doing here and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner” (vs 7).
There is an urgency today in getting the lost saved TODAY! What are you doing about it? What length are you willing to go to in order to see this done as a Christian? IS THERE ANY LOST AMONG YOU? In our homes, workplaces, schools, churches, etc. We can see them among us! Many of them, if we would be honest for a moment, are some of our famly members! I do not know about you, but I have plenty of them who are still lost!
Heaven rejoices over one sinner!!! Jesus came to find the lost and save them!!! YOU SHOULD SHOUT RIGHT THERE!!!!!!!!!!WHY? Because you and I were once one of them.
All these are parables depicts something being lost. The owners of these lost things and person is a picture of God the Father and the lost is a picture of you and I prior to salvation and every sinner that ever lived and will live that is not saved.
The seeking and saving grace of God in Christ Jesus was responsible for the dramatic change in Zacchaeus’ life. That seeking and saving grace of God changed Zacchaeus’ status from a lost sheep of Israel to a true son of Abraham.
Zacchaeus, A person whom the rabbis said could not be saved, a person whom the rabbis said was beyond salvation, a person whom the rabbis forever dismissed as a lost sheep of Israel, was converted because of the saving grace of God in and through Christ Jesus.
What Christ did for Zacchaeus He can still do for us today.
The enemy may have you thinking on today that you are beyond salvation, but the devil is a liar! You may have been lead to believe that “no one can save you; you are too bad or wicked; you are beyond saving; God wants nothing to do with you.”
Let me tell you this , my brothers and sisters, that no one is beyond saving. If God could save Zacchaeus He can save you as well. The Rabbis thought Zacchaeus was beyond redemption, but he wasn’t. You may think you or a loved one are beyond the reach of God’s love, but you aren’t. Don’t forget the marvelous news of the Gospel’s power to save and deliver on today!
We are reminded in Luke 19:10 -For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.” No sinner is so lost that God can’t find him. No sin is so big that God can’t forgive and save. No guilt is so large that God can’t remove it.
No one, absolutely no one, is beyond the seeking and saving grace of God in Christ Jesus.
Don’t forget, let me remind you again, of the Gospel message: “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.”
ARE YOU LOST? JESUS SAVES!!!
GOD BLESS AND DO TELL THE LORD THANK YOU!
Your sister in Christ.
