To Delay is Dangerous (Luke 19:1-10)

Tommy BoringTommy Boring, September 30, 2015
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service

Jesus came to save all from the rich to the poor. There is only one category a person can fall in, lost or saved. Some people don't know their lost, they've not come to the age of accountability. Others know and either seek out Jesus or run from Him. There have been a lot of curious people come to Jesus. When you want to be next to Jesus, there will always be obstacles in the way to keep you from Him. The beggars obstacle was that he was blind. Zacchaeus's obstacle was his height, he was short. When you realize that you need Jesus, RUN to Him as fast as you can and don't let anything get in your way. When it comes to salvation, delay is a very dangerous thing. Do you realize that Jesus invites Himself to your heart? All you have to do is either open the door and receive Him or keep the door shut refusing Him.

Luke 19:1-10

1And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. 2And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. 3And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature. 4And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way. 5And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house. 6And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully. 7And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner. 8And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold. 9And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham. 10For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. (KJV)
