“today I must stay at your house”
Jesus takes the initiative to find us. Just like the story of Zacchaeus. A man living a life of fortune and influence, yet unhappy. He heard about Jesus and was on the lookout for Him in the crowd. Jesus found him and invited himself to be a guest at his house. In great excitement and joy, Zacchaeus welcomed Jesus into life and he was never the same.
Do you desire healing, peace, joy and abundance? Jesus is always on the lookout. Standing at our door, patiently knocking until we open and let him in. Not easy though, it takes humility to recognise our shortcomings and acknowledge our ways. Only then shall we find ourselves before his merciful gaze. He welcomes us into his open and loving arms. Now is the time, let us come to Jesus.
