’HE HAS GONE TO STAY AT A SINNER’S HOUSE’ THEY SAID
Zacchaeus seeks Jesus and Jesus responds by taking the initiative to invite Himself to his house, which signifies that a sinner must show enough interest to turn and get to a place where he or she can be seen by God. Once Zacchaeus climbs the tree Jesus seizes the moment; “Hurry down, I must stay at your house.” What it means is that He wants to enter into Zacchaeus’ heart and transform it. He wants to dwell within Zacchaeus, to shape his mind according to His own. In the presence of Jesus, we realize what we are made for.
