To Seek and Save

Speaker of Truth

 


Luke 19:7-10
New Living Translation (NLT)

7 But the people were displeased. “He has gone to be the guest of a notorious sinner,” they grumbled.

8 Meanwhile, Zacchaeus stood before the Lord and said, “I will give half my wealth to the poor, Lord, and if I have cheated people on their taxes, I will give them back four times as much!”

9 Jesus responded, “Salvation has come to this home today, for this man has shown himself to be a true son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”


Speaker of Truth

He held no degrees of learning,
Not a credential or even an award,
He simply spoke the truth in parables
While completely healing the broken horde,

They clung to him as he traveled,
Sat at his feet on the mountainside,
Watched as he fed the thousands
And called forth Lazarus from the other side,

He rode into town on a donkey,
While the powerful plotted his end,
Then he sat ‘round the table to save us,
Only to be betrayed by a very close friend,

He endured a trial of such mockery,
Silent as a lamb he would be slain,
On a tree he endured our just punishment
Until only his righteousness remained,

Truth was the sword that he wielded
And love was the message he gave,
He waits now for the final commandment
To gather all the lost that he sought and saved.
