Scripture tells us Zaccheus was short – so he climbed a tree to see Jesus, probably not expecting Jesus to see him. But Jesus looked up and said,
Zaccheus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today. Luke 19:5
Today you are invited to consider how you would respond if your name was in the place of Zaccheus’ name today. If your house is the one Jesus will be staying in tonight. How does that make you feel. What will you do to prepare? Where are the cobwebs? Are you willing to welcome Jesus into your home? Why/why not? How about the home which is your heart? What spring cleaning would you do? What doors would you shut – and maybe even lock? What parts of your life would you rather not have Jesus entering? Jesus knows you. Whether you shut and lock doors or fling them wide open, Jesus knows. What will you say to Him as He enters your home today?
May God bless you with the help you need to spring clean – whether your physical home or your spiritual one. And may you rest in Him once the work is done.
