Galatians 5.8-9 NASB ‘For Something Better’

 

8 This persuasion did not come from Him who calls you. 9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough.

We all know Zacchaeus was a “wee little man” who climbed a sycamore tree to catch a glimpse of Jesus—a rather undignified act (Luke 19:1-9). But what was his motive? From a worldly perspective, Zacchaeus had everything to lose and nothing to gain from meeting Christ. Yet that didn’t stop him. Despite his influence and wealth, he sensed that there was something more to life. And perhaps he sensed, too, that there was Someone who would unconditionally love even a despised tax collector.

When Jesus said He would be staying at Zacchaeus’s house, the man “hurried and came down, and received Him joyfully” (Luke 19:6). Then that joy overflowed into action. After coming face-to-face with the Savior, Zacchaeus—without any prompting—pledged to give half his possessions to the poor and repay four times the amount he had extorted. By unclenching his fingers to relinquish the money, he was able to reach out for the greater blessing Jesus offered.

Think about it
• Is there something in your life that God is leading you to relinquish? If so, what is the reason for your hesitation?

 

LUKE 19.1-9 1 He entered Jericho and was passing through. 2 And there was a man called by the name of Zaccheus; he was a chief tax collector and he was rich. 3 Zaccheus was trying to see who Jesus was, and was unable because of the crowd, for he was small in stature. 4 So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree in order to see Him, for He was about to pass through that way. 5 When Jesus came to the place, He looked up and said to him, Zaccheus, hurry and come down, for today I must stay at your house.” 6 And he hurried and came down and received Him gladly. 7 When they saw it, they all began to grumble, saying, He has gone to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.” 8 Zaccheus stopped and said to the Lord, Behold, Lord, half of my possessions I will give to the poor, and if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I will give back four times as much.” 9 And Jesus said to him, Today salvation has come to this house, because he, too, is a son of Abraham.

 

Titus 2.13 NKJV

looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,

1 Corinthians 15.51-52 NKJV

51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

1 Thessalonians 4.17 NKJV

Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
