“When He reached the place, Jesus looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down quickly, for today I must stay at your house.” And he came down quickly and received him with joy.
Comment: Zacchaeus, who was considered a sinner not because he was a tax collector, but because he extorted more than what was required by law, making him an abuser of law, followed Jesus as soon as He called him. Now that is obedience, doing what you are told right away. That i believe was what saved him. That action paved the way for Zacchaeus to make full repentance. It led him to give up worldly wants for something more.
Prayer: Lord, as Your believer and follower, may we be quick to respond to Your call even to the point of abandoning what makes us comfortable, Amen. Sent from my iPad
