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.All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner.” (Luke 19:5-7)
Jesus reached the spot. For Zacchaeus, it was the tree he had climbed to get a better view of Jesus. For us, the cross was spot he saw us. We matter to God so every day is the best day. What impression are we trying to make before God? God doesn’t need to be impressed–in fact, we can’t impress him. What he wants is for us to express our love to him in worship as the individuals that we are. That will be different for each person. Discover more in this teaching by Pastor Joel Pagett.
