Luke 19: 1-10 "Zacchaeus the Tax Collector"

Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. He wanted to see who Jesus was, but being a short man he could not, because of the crowd. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way. When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today." So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. All the people saw this and began to mutter, "He has gone to be the guest of a 'sinner.' " But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, "Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount." Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost."

(New International Version)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

In this passage we see a man named Zacchaeus who finds salvation in Christ Jesus. Zacchaeus was a tax collector and back then, they were amongst the most corrupt, collecting taxes not only for the Romans but for themselves as well.

Being too short, he climbs a sycamore tree to see Jesus. Because he climbed the tree, he caught the
attention of Jesus. The sycamore tree that Zacchaeus climbed helped him find salvation.

We want to be like the sycamore tree Zacchaeus climbed, letting those who wish, use us to get a better glimpse of Christ.


We are Sycamore, a unit of One, helping those who wish to climb on us get a better glimpse of Christ.
