We’ve all seen poor people begging for money from the rich. How often do you see the rich following after the poor trying to stuff money into the poor’s pocket? That’s what God has done throughout the ages.
In the New Testament, Zaccheus just wanted to get a glimpse of Jesus. What did he get? Christ’s attention, friendship and salvation! All we ask for is a gentle glance – we get God’s arm around us! We would be happy being Christ’s servant – He makes us His friend. We come staggering home from a pig-pen lifestyle with a broken heart and a well-rehearsed confession, and He gives us a robe, a ring, shoes and a royal welcome. God loves us beyond our comprehension.
Doesn’t He amaze you?
