The well known story in the Bible of Zacchaeus is about much more than how a short man climbed a tree to see Jesus. It's all about a sinner who earnestly sought out the Saviour, an individual tired of his sins, a rich man sick of his money who wanted instead the true riches of God's salvation. And, yes, it's also about a seeking Saviour - one who came specifically to seek and to save the lost - the one whose heart yearned for the salvation of sinful souls. Is it any wonder then that the two of them met?
There are many ways to handle the complexities of life - many ways of looking at or trying to make sense of the world around us. There is polytheism, secularism, humanism, and post-modernism to name a few. But all these fall short in fulfilling our greatest need - the need for forgiveness. The simple answer lies in John Chapter 10 - in the Door to heaven. Who is this door? The Lord Jesus Christ whom believing souls can confidently trust for their salvation.
There's an interesting story in the Bible about the healing of a paralytic man by the Lord Jesus Christ. Amidst all the drama of breaking up the roof and lowering the man down into the crowd, the Lord Jesus remained unfazed. He didn't even seem that concerned about the man's physical condition. "Your sins are forgiven", He said. Why would He say this? The man needed to be healed, didn't he? But to Christ, he had a more obvious need - the forgiveness of sins. The same goes for you and me.
The apostle Paul was a tremendous evangelist and wrote a large portion of the New Testament explaining the doctrine of the gospel. Many people have gotten saved through the wonderful verses that the Holy Spirit led him to write. Verses of conviction and verses of salvation. This episode looks at three verses in 2 Corinthians that explains the clear gospel message.
Apart from the cross itself, there can be no more poignant a symbol of the horrendous sufferings of Christ than the awful crown of thorns that He wore. The hymn writer wrote, "See from His head, His hands, His feet; sorrow and love flow mingled down; Did e'er such love and sorrow meet; Or thorns compose so rich a crown?" It was an instrument of pain, mockery and reproach that came from the hearts of wicked men. But it was also an emblem of Christ's ultimate purpose to put away the curse once and for all.
