I have to regularly take time to absorb the reality of what Pastor Jeff Manion of Ada Bible Church is talking about in this clip from last weekend's sermon where he recounts the story of Zacchaeus from the Bible. I've heard the story many, many times and I've seen in my mind a short guy who claimed a tree to see Jesus walking through his town.
This story, he said, is an important reminder that Jesus sees each one of us, knows each one of us and wants each one of us. All we have to do is say he can have us.
This is pure gold as a reminder of a truth that's far too easy to gloss over and put to the side. I've done it. With God's help and with YouTube, I'll have this video reminder.
