Jesus Alone Satisfies Our Souls

Read: Luke 19:1-10

We’ve all heard the phrase, “climbing the ladder of success.” Maybe you’re climbing the corporate ladder in search of that next big promotion. Maybe you’re climbing a social ladder, eager to gain the approval of the “it” crowd. We can all relate to how it feels to strive toward a goal. But what happens when there’s nowhere else to climb?

Zacchaeus was a man who had reached the pinnacle of his career. He was the chief tax collector, and as such, he had wealth and power. It would seem Zacchaeus had it all, but he wasn’t happy. So when Jesus, a man rumored of healing people and changing hearts, came to Zacchaeus’ hometown, Zacchaeus was so eager to see Him that he climbed a tree.

Jesus, seeing Zacchaeus’ eagerness, called him down from the tree and went to his house. There, Zacchaeus’ life changed. When Zacchaeus met Jesus, he finally understood that it was Jesus, not money, that saved him. It was Jesus, not money, that satisfied him. It was Jesus, not money, that would bring him true success.

When we surrender to Jesus as our savior, our hearts aren’t the only things that are changed. Heart change leaks into every area of our lives, even our finances, as we begin to seek Jesus instead of the next best thing.

Think About:
1. Who do you picture when you think of someone who “has it all”? What do you admire about that person?
2. Has your definition of “having it all” changed since you met Jesus? Why or why not?
3. What would you do for God if money was not an issue? What step can you take today to be obedient to what God has called you to do?

Pray:
Jesus, forgive me for being tempted to think that more stuff will make me happy. You alone are what satisfies my soul!
