When Jesus Stops By (Luke 19:1-10)Pastor Jared Shumate, October 28, 2018
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Quick, what's the first thing you think of when you think about Zacchaeus? Most likely your first thought was that he was a wee little man, just as the children's song says. But think more about this man's story, or go read it in Luke 19. You'll find a sinner who Jesus called out by name and dined with. You'll find a man who repented of his sins and made amends to the people he had wronged.
A lot can change when Jesus stops by.
"For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost." -Luke 19:10

1And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. 2And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. 3And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature. 4And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way. 5And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house. 6And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully. 7And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner. 8And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold. 9And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham. 10For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. (KJV)
