Luke 19:1-10 Christ and Zacchaeus

19: He entered Jericho and was passing through. 2 And behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus. He was a chief tax collector and was rich. 3 And he was seeking to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was small in stature. 4 So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was about to pass that way. 5 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for I must stay at your house today.” 6 So he hurried and came down and received him joyfully. 7 And when they saw it, they all grumbled, “He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.” 8 And Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor. And if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I restore it fourfold.” 9 And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, since he also is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”

To the consternation of many, Jesus talked to everyone. The poor, the downcast, the Pharisee, and sinners (according to the Jewish culture of the day.) Christ purposefully chose Zacchaeus to demonstrate the breadth of how people could live and yet still enter heaven.

They did not have to adhere to the Sabbath. They could have money and not have to bribe the priestly class to gain entry to paradise. They could be farmers, fishermen, carpenters, soldiers, rulers, and tax collectors.

Zacchaeus knew the general impression of a tax collector during that time. They skimmed what they could and took advantage of every situation possible. Therefore, he quickly told Jesus how he was going to repay any wrongs.

Luke 17:11-19 – Christ Cures ten Lepers – But Only One Came back to Thank Him

Luke 17:11-19

Ten Lepers Cleansed

11 Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.

12 Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off.

13 And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”

14 So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed.

15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God,

16 and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan.

17 So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine?

18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?”

19 And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”

In the analysis of this set of verses, I will not comment on the cleansing of the lepers, but on the sad fact that only one person, who was healed of a terrible disease, of which there was no cure at the  time of Christ, returned to thank He who healed him.

Luke 17:7-10 – Unworthy Servants – What did Jesus Mean?

Luke 17:7-10

7 “Suppose one of you has a servant plowing or looking after the sheep. Will he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, ‘Come along now and sit down to eat’?

8 Won’t he rather say, ‘Prepare my supper, get yourself ready and wait on me while I eat and drink; after that you may eat and drink’?

9 Will he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do?

10 So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.’”

But the servants did their what they were commanded to do – What is the problem? The problem is the foundational weakness of most people on earth. We do just enough to get by. It’s not enough.

Increase Your Faith – What did Jesus Mean? – Faith is Measurable in the Spirit Realm

Luke 17:5-6

5 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”

6 He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.

Could you command a mulberry to be transported to the sea? Yes, in the spirit world you could. But you need faith.

Salt Without Taste is Useless – What did Jesus Mean?

Luke 14:34-35

34 “Salt is good, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored?

35 It is of no use either for the soil or for the manure pile. It is thrown away. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”

Salt: a preservative, which enhances the taste of food. If salt loses it effect, then why use it? After all, salt is meant to improve flavor.

Spirituality is the same. It is an added ingredient in one’s life. Meant to enhance the perspective of life, to give life meaning and hope. Spirituality should be a welcomed part of the daily routine.

Settle with Your Accuser – Luke 12:57-59

Luke 12:57-59

57 “Why don’t you judge for yourselves what is right?

58 As you are going with your adversary to the magistrate, try hard to be reconciled on the way, or your adversary may drag you off to the judge, and the judge turn you over to the officer, and the officer throw you into prison.

59 I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.”

Verse 59 is the foreshadowing of your future lives and an explanation for trials in past lives. True words spoken by Christ.
