Jesus Invites Us to Unusual Unity

Key Point

Imagine how incredible our world would be if everyone attempted to align themselves with Christ!

Discussion | Jesus Invites Us to Unusual Unity

Come together and discuss the story of Zacchaeus and the lesson that Jesus invites us to unusual unity. Zacchaeus’ commitment was huge!

Zacchaeus lived in Jerusalem, was a tax collector and was short. He climbed a tree to see Jesus and then welcomed Jesus as his guest. After, he vowed to give half of his wealth to the poor and repay anyone he cheated in taxes by paying back four times the amount.

Recap

We heard about Bartimaeus calling out to Jesus, and then Jesus asks him, What do you want me to do for you?” Bartimaeus asks for sight. Jesus heals him, restoring his eyesight. 

We learned that we are not going to annoy Jesus with our desperation and asking him a lot and that we can tell him honestly what it is that we want him to do for us!
