A Daily Devotion for Thursday, April 8


Luke 19: 1-10


verse 10: “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.”


When I read the entire passage this morning, I initially felt a little “left out.” I don’t consider myself “lost” but I know I fit in the scene somehow. I began to think of myself as the tree. I can help Jesus by helping others find him. I can be safe, dependable, a landmark along the way, and offer others a way to find and meet Jesus.

Heavenly Father, I no longer am lost, but have been found by you. I will not lose my way. I want to help others to find you, to see you, and to meet you. Put me to work, set me down in places where I can be helpful. Amen

Jesus brought the lost Zacchaeus into his Kingdom regardless of his precious way of life. Through faith Jesus will find the lost , forgive them and they will be made new. Lord, because of Zacchaeus’s encounter with Jesus he was transfo…

10 “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the Lost.”


What a promise this is to hear. Jesus will come to save all of us who may have wandered away for a time. With the help of the Holy Spirit, Jesus never let’s go. He is always there working behind the scenes to keep us close. What a wonderful thing this is. I can speak to this and thank God every day that I was found.


Dearest Lord, you never let go. Even when I was not paying attention to you, you were always there for me. How selfish I was to let you go. And yet, you forgive me and help me…

Luke 19:7 - “All who saw it began to grumble and said, ‘He has gone to be the guest of one who is a sinner.’”


Whose heart was in the right place In this scene? It was clearly not the self-righteous critics who grumbled at Jesus ministering to Zaccheus. Jesus recognized a heart seeking a better way, one at the edge of repentance and ripe for salvation. The result was a household entering the kingdom of God.


Prayer - Jesus, Savior of the lost, keep my heart open to Your call for repentance and my eyes focused on living the life of faith that is worthy of being called Christian. Let that life not be one of Pharisaical rules and…
