--------------The Bible story about the short little man, Zacchaeus, was always interesting
--------------and fun for me to read with my children when they were young. They loved
--------------to imagine how this little man of stature, had climbed up into a sycamore
--------------
tree, just so he could see Jesus pass by. But when we take a deeper look at
--------------Zacchaeus, and what he had in mind when climbing that tree, we see a very
important message of salvation, and a very
BIG person to say the least, redeemed and
saved by the grace of God!

Zacchaeus was a superintendent of customs, a chief tax-collector at Jericho, which at
that time produced and exported considerable quantities of balsam (various pleasantly
scented plant products). The collection of customs was undoubtedly an important post,
and would account for Zacchaeus being such a rich man. But now, after seeing Jesus,
Zacchaeus was a man with a changed heart!

Because of the crowds, Zacchaeus ran ahead and waited in a sycamore tree for Jesus
to pass by. I love the part when Jesus stops, looks up into the tree, and calls for
Zacchaeus and says,
"Make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your
house."
Our LORD Jesus could see Zacchaeus' change of heart. One of true
repentance, the desire to turn from living a sinful life, to now living a life for God!  

Zacchaeus knew that all his riches and wealth would never make him happy. He also
knew that he needed a Savior, one that could save him from all his sins. One who could
give him true happiness and peace of mind. His desire and change of heart, to make
restitution with those he falsely accused and stolen from, and to give half of his goods
to the poor, could have only been made possible by the gift of God, to those who believe.

Ephesians 2:8-10
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this not from yourselves,
it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God's
workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance
for us to do.
NIV

2 Corinthians 6:1-2
As God's fellow workers we urge you not to receive God's grace in vain. 2 For he says,

"In the time of my favor I heard you,
and in the day of salvation I helped you."

I tell you, now is the time of God's favor, now is the day of salvation.

Luke 19:1-10

19:1 Jesus Comes to Zacchaeus' House

Then Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. 2 Now behold, there was a man
named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich. 3 And he sought to
see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature. 4
So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to
pass that way.  5 And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and
said to him,
"Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your
house."
 6 So he made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully. 7 But when
they saw it, they all complained, saying,"He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a
sinner."

8 Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, "Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to
the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore
fourfold."

9 And Jesus said to him,
"Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a
son of Abraham;  10 for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was
lost."
