Adam and Eve recognized their nakedness. (Genesis 3:7) Surrendering to Jesus is being recognized as a disciple of Jesus. (Matthew 22:1-14) As we follow Jesus we can recognize the wrinkles falling from our life. (Ephesians 5:25-27) Our good works will make us recognizable as the bride. (Revelation 19:1-9) May our clothing reflect not our past, but our wrinkle-free future of righteous deeds.
Luke 19:1-10 Sermon Big Idea: Truly inviting Jesus to our feast is to let him be the host. Short in stature, short in morals, but a tall stack of money had he. Zacchaeus couldn’t resist the desire to see Jesus. What identified Zacchaeus was replaced with Jesus. Jesus healed another blind man. Jesus became the host of Zacchaeus’ house by way of salvation.
