Zacchaeus’ Salvation

Luke 19:1-10 describes the conversion of a soul. Like the stories of Nicodemus in John chapter 3, and the Samaritan woman in John chapter 4, the story of Zacchaeus should be studied by anyone who is seeking salvation. The Lord Jesus never changes. What He did for Zacchaeus, He is... Read more →

Don’t Give Up

If you had taken a poll and asked, “Name the most hated man in Jericho,” Zacchaeus would have been named on 99% of the ballots. And then you’d ask the second question, “Who is the least likely person to want to see Jesus?” Zacchaeus would once again have been at... Read more →

A Present, Perfect, Personal Salvation

“This day is salvation come to this house” (Luke 19:9). These precious words from the account of the conversion of Zacchaeus present three characteristics of the salvation which the grace of God brings. It is a present salvation, a perfect salvation, and a personal salvation. “This Day”—A Present Salvation Dear... Read more →

Seeking and Saving

“The Son of Man is come to seek and to save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10). I suggest that this verse is the central, key text of the Gospel of Luke. What wondrous truths are stated here, in the most amazingly simple language. Here are fifteen one-syllable words, only... Read more →


There is a priceless lesson in the interesting story of Zacchaeus. If anyone is serious about his soul’s salvation, serious in the pursuit of truth, serious in her desire after Christ, that person will—most assuredly—get all they seek for, and much more beside. The earnest seeker is sure to become... Read more →

He Knows Your Name

“O Lord, Thou hast searched me, and known me” (Psalm 139:1). What did they call Zacchaeus in his hometown of Jericho? Most folks recognized him as the chief tax collector. The Romans may have identified him with a number. He was merely one cog in the huge machine that brought... Read more →

Better Than Gold

There are some who think that salvation is similar to a present they receive in the mail. While it was good and kind of the Lord to send this gift to them, they imagine that He remains at a great distance from them. Have you ever felt like this? If... Read more →

Hurrying to Jesus

We live in a day and age where people like to hurry. We like to run around and see how much we can get done. Luke describes for us how Zacchaeus “Ran … and climbed up into a sycomore tree” in order to see Jesus (Luke 19:4). Zacchaeus, though he... Read more →

Time with Jesus

“I must abide at thy house” (Luke 19:5). Without question one of the most remarkable Christian doctrines is that Jesus Christ Himself through the presence of the Holy Spirit will actually enter a heart, settle down, and be at home there. Christ will make the human heart His abode.  One... Read more →

Saved and Kept

“This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham” (Luke 19:9). Jesus does not mean that every member of Zacchaeus’ family automatically got saved because Zacchaeus did. A man’s salvation does not extend to his wife and children—they must personally repent and... Read more →
