Be Like Zach

Josh Harris concludes his series on Zacchaeus with these words:

Friend, if you realize you're lost then follow the example of Zacchaeus. Don't walk—run to see him. Climb whatever you need to climb to know him. Welcome him with joy into your life. Believe that he went to the cross to pay for your sins. Give up your sins in exchange for everlasting life.

That's the example God wants us to see in Zacchaeus and his story. When Jesus calls you, receive him and reject sin. And when you do, Jesus will make the same joyful declaration about you: "Salvation has come to this house!"

Jesus came to seek and to save the lost. He will not pass you by.
