"...Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay in your house." - Luke 19:5

"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me." - Revelation 3:20

We all know the story of Zacchaeus, how he, due to his short stature, climbed a sycamore tree to get a glimpse of Jesus. Jesus knew Zacchaeus and no one had to introduce him to Jesus. And Jesus took the initiative to talk to Zacchaeus and even offered to stay with Him that day. Jesus takes the initiative to come into our heart and life when we by faith invite Him. Jesus offers to come into those who by faith receive Him. Imagine, the God of this universe Whom the universe cannot contain offers to make His dwelling with us, in our hearts. Have you invited Him and accepted His offer?
Praise the Lord!
