In Luke 19 is the interesting story of Zacchaeus, the little tax collector who shinnied up a sycamore tree to get a better look at Jesus. Jesus spotted him and told him to come down and invited Himself over for a meal.

During dinner something happened that revolutionized the tax collector’s life. We know nothing about the conversation, but when Zaccheaus emerged from the house that afternoon he made a dramatic announcement. He promised to give away half of his wealth to poor people, and to return fourfold the amount of money he had taken dishonestly.

The mark of Zaccheaus’s transformation was his staggering generosity. That’s why Jesus declared, “Today salvation has come to this house” (Luke 19:9). Salvation can’t be purchased with money, so what do you think Jesus was saying here? Please comment with your opinion on how Jesus knew salvation had come to Zaccheaus.

Jesus was saying accept me and give me your heart and your life. Anyone could see that Zacchaeus heart had changed. I am doing a new song that simply says “all that I am and have I owe to Him and it’s all because of Calvary.” I sang it at Smith Farms last visit and the truth is so evident.
