Our Wed. a.m. Bible study included the story of Zacchaeus (Luke 19). A wee little man was he (also wealthy and despised was he). But he reacted in not such a wee manner when he came face to face with Jesus. When Jesus said to Zacchaeus, “I must stay at your house today,” Zacchaeus immediately said, “Look, half of my possessions, Lord, I will give to the poor.” And then he confessed, “If I have defrauded anyone of anything, I will pay back four times as much.”
Two amazing responses to the presence of Jesus! We claim Jesus’ presence widely. What did he discover about life in Jesus’ presence that we might be missing in life?
