Joni and Friends Daily Devotional 7th December 2021 Tuesday Message

 

Topic: Bold Love

SCRIPTURE: “Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. He ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way. When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, ‘Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.’ So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly.”- Luke 19:1-6

MESSAGE

Why is it that Jesus singled out the little man in the sycamore tree, no one knows. But what is clear is this: The Lord stepped boldly into Zacchaeus’s life. Out of the entire crowd, Jesus called him by name. He told Zacchaeus to scurry down from his perch. And the Lord not only invited himself to his home, he hardly gave the little man time to think twice about it.

Some would say that Jesus was a bit bold to presume upon Zacchaeus. Telling a host he must open his home to you? Bold, yes. But it was the boldness of love. Jesus ensured that his command would be well received, for He inclined the heart of Zacchaeus to welcome him.

The love of God is daring and courageous. But wait. When you consider that it’s the Lord of the universe who steps up to the door of your heart and knocks for entrance, only a fool would refuse him entry. Like Zacchaeus, Jesus invites himself into your life, bringing his own joy and welcome. And just as he did with Zacchaeus, he tells you not to hesitate.

“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me” (Revelation 3:20).

I can learn something from Zacchaeus, Lord. I can throw open the door of my heart to you and say, “Welcome!”
