Jesus, in the story of Zaccheus you reveal the whole reason you came to earth, your mission statement, your guiding purpose: to seek and save the lost. Thank you for seeking me out, even when I wasn’t interested in finding you. Thank you for saving me when I had no hope of saving myself.
Your mission fulfills the ultimate need of all humanity: to be saved. We need to be saved from your wrath against sin, by your perfect sacrifice, into a relationship with you, for your glory. We are saved from you, by you, to you, and for you. Even my own salvation is not about me, but about you getting all the glory!
