Before you were looking for Jesus, He was looking out for you.
This week, Pastor Brad Jones reminds us of the story of Zacchaeus, who climbed a tree amongst a crowd just to catch a glimpse of Jesus. As a corrupt tax collector, Zacchaeus was an outsider, someone the people of his town believed would be the absolute last person Jesus would address. Yet, because of his faith and desire to see Jesus, his faith and perseverance were rewarded. We have this same opportunity today, to focus our energy on seeing and knowing Jesus. No matter how far on the outside we may feel, Jesus is looking to bring us into His family if we just open our eyes to who He really is.
