The story of Jesus’ encounter with Zacchaeus is filled with ideas that have shaped the Christian faith for centuries. It is one of the many stories of individuals who are trying to find God, to find the keys for a new life. At the same time some are searching for God, others are trying to hide from God. Jonah is a story of a prophet who is trying to escape what God wants him to do. A popular theme throughout Christianity is that God is searching for us, as we search for God. When we encounter Jesus Christ, life becomes new. Zacchaeus climbed into a tree to get a better look at Jesus who was passing by. He had no idea that Jesus was coming for him. Jesus also comes for us, but are we willing to ‘go out on a limb’ to meet him?
