In Luke 19: 2 , we see a man by the name of Zacchaeus who wanted to see who Jesus was and being short he could not , because of the crowd. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore fig tree to see him. . When Jesus reached the spot , he looked up and said to him, "Zacchaeus come down immediately , I must stay at your house today. So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. Here we see , Zacchaeus who was considered to be a sinner because he was tax collector took a little step overcoming his physical disability to see who Jesus was . Jesus understood the initiative taken by him and assured him that He will come to His house. In the crowd that followed Jesus was Pharisees , Sadducees , Jesus' disciples and many others . But Jesus , the Lord , look at the heart and not the face , and understood the sincere efforts taken by Zacchaeus and forgave Zaccheus , "Today Salvation has come to this house , because this man too, is a son of Abraham . For the son of man came to seek and to save what was lost. "Let us take a small initiative but sincerely with whole heart . Jesus will definitely recognise and give salvation. . Lord , please remember the people who read this message and take small step by just kneeling down to say "Amen" and bless them abundantly . Forgive my sins too. Amen

1 Sarah R = "Tax collectors at that time were viewed as "beyond redemption." They were Jewish but worked for the Romans and cheated their own people. Jesus frequently spent time with people considered "sinners" by those who considered themselves "religious." Somehow today we tend to get that backwards. See: "Jesus, Friend of Sinners.""
2 Sarah R = "1 Samuel 16:7b, "The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.""
