He Wanted an Encounter with Jesus


Reference text: Luke 19:1-10

“Jesus responded, “Salvation has come to this home today, for this man has shown himself to be a true son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.””
‭‭Luke‬ ‭19:9-10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus Christ.”
Blaise Pascal

“And he hurried and came down and received Him gladly.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭19:6‬ ‭NASB‬‬

Zacchaeus made two promises:
  1. “I will give half of my wealth to the poor.”
  2. “If I have cheated anyone on their taxes, I will repay them back four times as much.”

“God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:8-9‬ ‭NLT‬‬
