When you come to know Jesus, neither physical disability, being a sinner, or having a sinful past can keep you from following Jesus. NOTHING. This is what the story of Zaccheus powerfully demonstrates … Jesus calls us by name and commands us to follow Him with haste. And when we follow, we’re called upon to prove that with practical action, as Zaccheus did. (There are some intriguing parallels to Joshua 1-3 in here, which is deliberate given that Zaccheus lived in Jericho.) I preached on these themes today, and others, in my sermon from Luke 19:1-27 (c.f. 2 Samuel 7:1-17). I also preached this without any written notes!
God bless, Pastor Haydn.
