Text: Luke 19:1-5

๐Ÿ“–1….”And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.
๐Ÿ“–2….And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich.
๐Ÿ“–3….And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature.
๐Ÿ“–4….And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.
๐Ÿ“–5….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.”

Message:

๐Ÿ”ฅThe story of Zacchaeus verified the statement of Jesus in Matthew 8:11-12, where he said that many shall come from the East and west and sit in the kingdom of heaven, but the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness. Zacchaeus was never a fan of Jesus, neither had he ever followed him. But out of curiosity, just to see how Jesus looked, he went and climbed a tree to catch a glimpse of him…Luke 19:3-4. But little did he know that his decision to see how Jesus looked, was a date with his destiny.

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅNote that Zacchaeus had never followed Jesus. Yet, many that had been following him, had not been privileged to host Jesus in their houses. What brings about transformation by divine visitation in the faith, is the eagerness to understand the Jesus we are following. Even though Zacchaeus was an ordinary tax collector, who hadn’t been a member of Jesus’ Church, yet he had the honour of having Jesus visiting him before the departmental heads of Jesus’ Church were visited, because Zacchaeus sought to see Jesus with curious faith.

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅImagine a mere publican like Zacchaeus, changing Jesus’ route by curiosity! He even climbed a tree to see Jesus. What unusual thing have you done to have Jesus’ route changed in your favour? Or to have Jesus spend a whole day in your house like Zacchaeus? Beloveth, what kind of faith brings you to the Church? Are you curious and eager to meet the Jesus you go to the Church for? Or has the Church become a routine place for recreation and unwinding for you? God said in Hebrews 11:6 that, diligence makes him to be found. But Zacchaeus has added curiosity to it. Therefore, seek God with a diligent curiosity, and he will be found by you.

SOULS ACTIVITIES:

๐Ÿ™Heavenly Father, turn every decision I make to fellowship with you, to a date with my destiny transformation in Jesus’ name.

๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™Dear Lord, use every curious action of mine to know you more in the faith, to oblige me with your divine visitation, in Jesus’ name.

๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™Ancient of days, increase my curiosity to meet with you each time I go into your house and presence, in Jesus’ name.
