PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Luke 19:1-10
What do you sense the Lord saying to you in this passage?
“Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.” (Luke 19:5)
Zacchaeus thought he was checking Jesus out; now Jesus takes charge.
In a sense, Jesus steps in to his life uninvited – “I must stay at your house!”
Little did Zacchaeus know that morning how Jesus would turn his life upside down.
I have heard stories about this, testimonies of people like Zacchaeus.
One story was of a fierce LGBTQ advocate doing research on the religious right.
She interviewed a pastor, which turned into an ongoing relationship.
Somehow, she had a dramatic conversion, and is now an advocate for Jesus!
Little did she know that morning how Jesus would turn her life upside down.
Jesus is the main ‘ingredient’ in our evangelism; just talk about Jesus.
When Jesus enters the picture, he can take things in surprising ways.
I once read a book on evangelism that said, ‘just introduce them to Jesus!’
Jesus is real, and he has the knowledge and skill to change peoples lives.
I have no complicated method or technique for evangelism; I just talk about Jesus.
Jesus will find a way to enter that persons heart, and turn their life right-side up!
Lord, help me to have more confidence in You, and not feel it is up to me to change people.
