But Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord, “Look, I’ll give half of my possessions to the poor, Lord! And if I have extorted anything from anyone, I’ll pay back four times as much!”
Zacchaeus’ words and actions reflect his changed heart and illustrate true repentance that led to true life. His personal encounter with Lord Jesus truly changed His life. An encounter with the living Christ still has such an effect on people today. He alone can truly change hearts, minds and lives. You will know them by their fruit.
Jesus is the Hope for all mankind. Still today, He regularly performs the miracle of changing people’s lives. He is willing and able. Come down from your high perch of observation and lay your life before Him. Repent. His love is incomparable.
Take words with you and return to the LORD.
Say to Him, “Take away all iniquity
And receive us graciously,
That we may present the fruit of our lips.”
