Luke 19

Father, thank You for Jesus and the life I have in Him!

“YOU WILL SEEK ME & FIND ME WHEN YOU SEEK ME WITH ALL YOUR HEART” (Jer 29:13 NIV)

Here’s Zacchaeus, a man whose vocation was as a tax collector and whose stature was shorter than most in the crowd.  He had become quite wealthy in his work, possibly not all through ways of integrity.  He hears that Jesus was in town and, wanting to see Him, found himself what he felt was HIS best seat around.  He sought out the Lord he’d heard about.

You saw him, Jesus.  You knew how he was seeking You.  And, just like Your Word says, those who seek You really do find You.  You didn’t just acknowledge his presence, You extended genuine interest in spending time with him, getting to know him in his home even.

You want to know each one of us, Lord, and I’m glad that includes me.  Thank You for letting me know You.  Thank You for wanting to know me.  Thank You for making Your home inside of me, as You move in, redecorate, and work to make me just like Jesus each day.  Amen.
