A Light in darkness

Luke 19
1 Jesus entered Jericho and made his way through the town.2 There was a man there named Zacchaeus. He was the chief tax collector in the region, and he had become very rich.3 He tried to get a look at Jesus, but he was too short to see over the crowd.4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree beside the road, for Jesus was going to pass that way.
5 When Jesus came by, he looked up at Zacchaeus and called him by name."Zacchaeus!" he said. "Quick, come down! I must be a guest in your home today."
6 Zacchaeus quickly climbed down and took Jesus to his house in great excitement and joy.7 But the people were displeased. "He has gone to be the guest of a notorious sinner," they grumbled.
8 Meanwhile, Zacchaeus stood before the Lord and said, "I will give half my wealth to the poor, Lord, and if I have cheated people on their taxes, I will give them back four times as much!"
9 Jesus responded, "Salvation has come to this home today, for this man has shown himself to be a true son of Abraham.10 For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost."

Zacchaeus is an example to all of us. He gave half of his riches to the poor and repaid all those he wronged. Jesus came to this world to save the lost, are we trying to save the lost or is it to much to ask. Jesus did not say we spread the gospel but if it is to much to do then you do not have to. It is our responsibility to lead the lost to Jesus. Let people see Jesus in you so that they will hunger to be able to have that to. Let us talk more about Jesus, because if He is in your heart and you truly love him, you will not be able to keep it to yourself.

Lord let us show you to the lost.

You are all that i am.
