If you’re like most of us, it’s easy to be focused on one thing and frustrated when interrupted by another. In a certain sense, Zac interrupted Jesus’ journey to Jerusalem. But Jesus stopped what he was doing to stay with Zac. Can you think of a time when this has happened to you? You were doing one thing when an interruption turned out to be a divine appointment.
Zac wasn’t an interruption to Jesus’ mission, he was the object of it.
But along the way, he came across a man named Zacchaeus. He decided to proceed no further on his trip to Jerusalem. Instead, He’d stay at Zacchaeus’ house that day (Luke 19:5). Was it a distraction? Was it an interruption?
Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through (Luke 19:1). He was on his way to Jerusalem where he would suffer and die for the sins of the world. He’d also rise again. It was a pretty important trip.
Jesus didn’t see lost people as an interruption to his mission. In fact, they were the reason why he came. What if that’s the real reason why God has us doing what we’re doing today? Going to the store. Working at a job. Mowing the lawn. Walking down the street. All because the Son of Man came to seek and to save lost people. Today, let’s remember that they’re the reason we’re still here.
