Jesus Seeks a Sinful Man that Seeks After Him (Luke 19-10)

You may have heard of the account of Zacchaeus as a child. This man was hated by his countrymen for at least two reasons. First, he collected taxes for the occupying Roman government. He was a traitor in the eyes of those around him. Second, the way he gained his great wealth was by overcharging his countrymen when collecting taxes. They hated him as a thief. This man, short in stature, knew of his great sinfulness and sought to catch a glimpse of Jesus by climbing a tree. Jesus not only saw this man but went to his house. Zacchaeus believed and was changed forever. He made it right with everyone he cheated and gave his remaining money to the poor. God can save the worst of sinners, and thereby change worst of sinners.

Jesus Takes Time for a Blind Man (Luke 18:35-43)

Luke records the account of a blind man who heard Jesus coming. The blind man began crying out to Jesus for mercy, believing He was the prophesied Son of David. The crowd tried to quiet the blind man, but he cried out all the more. Jesus indeed took note of this sightless man who understood more than the rest. Jesus healed this blind man because the blind man believed who Jesus truly was and thus, what He could do. Do you believe in Jesus?

Timeline of Truth: God Deals with Disobedience (Joshua 7:1-26)
God takes sin very seriously. When Israel disobeys God’s command, the consequences are severe. Joshua leads the people to make thing right and to sanctify themselves before God. As His children, we need to understand how serious sin is and we need to forsake it and obey God.

God had a plan for Israel to cross the Jordan River, one of the largest natural barriers the nation had to face.  God gave the instructions and created the miracle for their passing, but it was up to Israel to obey.  God wants us to follow His plans and instructions in our lives.  When we do, we see God work.
