1 He entered Jericho and was passing through 2 And behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus. He was a chief tax collector and was rich. 3 And he was seeking to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not because he was small in stature. 4 So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was about to pass that way. 5 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for I must stay at your house today.” 6 So he hurried and came down and received him joyfully.
Zacchaeus was a seeker. As a chief tax collector, he sought after a job that brought with it a high position within the ruling nation’s ranks. He was a wealthy man because he sought out and found great riches. Zacchaeus was a man that seemed to find what any man would dream of. But only one search truly changed this man. Seeking to merely catch a glimpse, Zacchaeus found that Jesus would profoundly impact his life.
Why does a powerful, wealthy man become a seeker? Because what he has found is not satisfying. The slightest interest in Jesus leads to the most significant life change. At the intersection of a man’s interest and God’s power, there are tremendous results. Be a man who seeks out Jesus and finds what he is truly looking for.
DO THIS TODAY: Build interest in Jesus by curiously reading the entire chapter of Luke 19.
