Zacchaeus Uncovered His Sin
ZACCHAEUS UNCOVERED HIS SIN
TEXT: Prov. 28:13, Luke 19:1-10, 8-9
When Jesus got to Zacchaeus’ house, He didn’t force Zacchaeus to confess his sins. Zacchaeus stood up before Jesus and everyone else to uncover his sin willingly, admitting that he had cheated people. He was truthful and did not hide his sins from Jesus. Proverbs 28:13 tells us that if we confess and forsake our sins, we will obtain mercy. Because he did not cover his sin, Jesus forgave him and told him He had brought salvation to his house. Zacchaeus got saved that day because his actions pleased Jesus.
Action plan: Determine today that when you do something that displeases God, you will not hide it, but you will repent from it and confess it to God.
