The Tree Climber

One of the best moments in life is to be able to have quiet and alone time with God.  I love reading His Word as it speaks to my heart in a way that only God knows how to reach the very depths of my soul.  After reading scripture is when I love to write what’s in my heart to you.  I was listening to a sermon from Joyce Meyer yesterday.  She told the story from Luke, chapter 19, verse 1-5.  I’ll share it with you:

Jesus was going through the city of Jericho.  A man was there named Zacchaeus, who was a very important tax collector, and he was wealthy.  He wanted to see who Jesus was, but was not able because he was too short to see above the crowd.  He ran ahead to a place where Jesus could come, and he climbed a sycamore tree so he could see him.  When Jesus came to that place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down! I must stay at your house today.”

People were so upset and complained saying, “Jesus is staying with a sinner!” But Jesus knew Zacchaeus’s heart.  He said, “the Son of Man came to find lost people and save them.”

Zacchaeus was so determined to see Jesus, he climbed a sycamore tree! He welcomed Jesus into his home and into his heart and his life was changed forever. I just love this.

My post today was to share information about Book Two of The Christian Book Series, but God placed in my heart this scripture to share with you today; so I had to change my heading.  I pray it spoke to your heart as it did mine. Jesus loves you and always will.

Blessings to you all today!
