Born Again

Re: Verse reading – Luke 19:1-10 (day four) 
I’m sure Zaccheus had no clue what the day held for him.  He was curious.  He had heard about this man Jesus and he wanted to see what all the stir was about.  Zaccheus had a problem…he was short and he could not see over the crowd.  There was certainly no one who was going to yield a vantage point to him, a tax gatherer.  A solution…he would climb a tree to see Jesus.  Zaccheus discovered that climbing was unnecessary though…Jesus was looking for him.  When  Jesus called to Zaccheus, the response was much different than for the rich young ruler.  Both men were very rich.  The ruler left Jesus holding to his wealth, Zaccheus offered to give up his money.  There was a change in his life that was immediately evident!  Zaccheus was born again.  In verse 9, Jesus said “Today salvation has come to this house,”  When Jesus comes into a heart, things are never the same!  The evidence is unmistakable.
