1 Luke 19:5 “ I must stay at your house today. ” NIV

2 Luke 19: 1-10  Search and rescue: Creator found His seeker (1-6).  Accusation and rebuttal ( )  Judgment and hope (9-10). Let us focus on Luke 19:5

3 Luke 19 : 5 “I must stay at your house today (v5)”  God’s strong desire to be with his people in 2 words: must = δεῖ’ (Gk: dei ) = a necessity/ obligation stay = μένω (Gk : menō) = remain or abide  God’s mercy also extends to the Gentiles who are faithful in Him (see hand out)

4  Big privilege if someone of renown comes to us  Zacchaeus was honored as a reward for his repentance when Jesus chose to stay with him!  We can be like Zacchaues - repentant, forgiven, blessed, and honored by God by His presence!

5 Back in the Old Testament, God would show Himself only for… Special group of people Special Occasion Special Place

6 Reflections Today, GOD chose us as His special people (saints), His dwelling (our body as a temple) in a special occasion (our baptism).

7 Lessons  Thank God in prayer because He has chosen us to be His disciples, His dwelling!  Be urgent in our repentance from our sins as our response of gratefulness and humility to God’s love ! In the same way when Jesus found Zacchaues more than 2000 years ago, the LORD JESUS is also telling us now: “I must stay at your house today (v5)”
