Luke 19:1-10

So personal. If you went to church growing up or have been a Christian any time at all, then you're probably very familiar with the story of Zacchaeus. This story was one of the first I remember from my early Sunday School years. We even sang a song about his encounter with Jesus. Do you remember it too? So as I read Luke 19:1-10 for the umpteenth time today, I thought I'd be blogging to you about Zacchaeus. Was I ever wrong. By the time I reached verse 10, I knew I had to write about Jesus. He only said a couple of things in this passage, but the loud and clear message for me this morning was: Jesus is personal and wants to be personal with us.

Now I could give you a description of what I think Jesus being personal and me having a relationship with him is, but I believe that that relationship will look different for each of us. So think about this. What does a personal relationship with Christ look like from each direction--from Jesus to you and from you to Jesus? Would you take a couple of minutes and share what having a personal relationship with Jesus means for you? Tami W.

I'm listening to a song by the Soul Searchers as I type this note.

He's been my water when I got thirsty!
He's been my bread when I got hungry!
He's been my bridge over troubled water!

After a 50 year relationship, I know Jesus is alright!

Glory Hallelujah!
