2023 Day 306 – Luke 19

Zacchaeus was a chief tax collector.  In those days someone with that type of job was thought to be a sinner.  We do not know if Zacchaeus cheated people like others with similar jobs, but he at least had that reputation.  Jesus spent time at the home of Zacchaeus and that caused some talking.  “And when they saw it, they all grumbled, ‘He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.”’ (Luke 19:7)  Jesus let them know that He was just fulfilling his purpose for coming to earth.  “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” (Luke 19:10)  Without Him none of us would have any hope of being saved, but by His sacrifice we all can have hope.  “And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
