that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, Philippians 3:10 (NKJV)
Jesus, help me daily embrace your cross; thank you for that great fellowship of your sufferings.
Then Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich. And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature. So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way. Luke 19:1-4 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, please help us be like Zacchaeus and do whatever it takes to see Jesus.
And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, "Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house." Luke 19:5 (NKJV)
Jesus, you knew Zacchaeus and you know me. Thank you.
So he made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully. Luke 19:6 (NKJV)
Father, help us come with haste and joy to see Jesus.
But when they saw it, they all complained, saying, "He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner." Luke 19:7 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, please help me repent of grumbling about others finding their freedom in Christ Jesus.
Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, "Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold." Luke 19:8 (NKJV)
Jesus, help me respond with true repentance as Zacchaeus did.
And Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost." Luke 19:9-10 (NKJV)
Jesus, let your saving grace come into each of our homes as it did for Zacchaeus.
A word received: Desire my blessing as Zaccaeus did.
