After Jesus’ encounter with the Rich Young Ruler—a man who couldn’t bear to consider the cost of discipleship—he made a profound exclamation: “How difficult it is for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!” This prompted his disciples to ask who then could be saved, to which Jesus responded: “What is impossible with man is possible with God'” (Luke 18:24-27). Here, in the story of Zacchaeus, we see this glorious truth unfold as the salvation of God comes to the house of a very wealthy tax collector—a man who, by faith, becomes a true son of Abraham. In this sermon, Pastor Dave explains that it is not the sinner who finds Jesus (since he isn’t lost!) but that it is always the Son of Man who graciously seeks out and saves the lost.
