52: Living with Purpose – Did Jesus Have a Life Purpose? Part 1
February 19, 2023 / Andrew "Fitz" Fitzgibbon
Luke 19:1-2 (NLT)
1 Jesus entered Jericho and made his way through the town. 2 There was a man there named Zacchaeus. He was the chief tax collector in the region, and he had become very rich.
Luke 19:3-4 (NLT)
3 He tried to get a look at Jesus, but he was too short to see over the crowd. 4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree beside the road, for Jesus was going to pass that way.
Luke 19:5-7 (NLT)
5 When Jesus came by, he looked up at Zacchaeus and called him by name. “Zacchaeus!” he said. “Quick, come down! I must be a guest in your home today.” 6 Zacchaeus quickly climbed down and took Jesus to his house in great excitement and joy. 7 But the people were displeased. “He has gone to be the guest of a notorious sinner,” they grumbled.
Luke 19:8 (NLT)
8 Meanwhile, Zacchaeus stood before the Lord and said, “I will give half my wealth to the poor, Lord, and if I have cheated people on their taxes, I will give them back four times as much!”
Luke 19:9 (NLT)
9 Jesus responded, “Salvation has come to this home today, for this man has shown himself to be a true son of Abraham.”
Luke 19:10 (NLT)
10 “For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”
