20/20 Vision: “Go Make Disciples”

Luke 19:1-10 and Selected – Part 4

Matthew 28:18-19a 18  Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…”

As you are Going…

Expect people to __________________________.

Luke 19:1-3  Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through.  A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy.  He wanted to see who Jesus was, but being a short man he could not, because of the crowd. [Mt 7:7]

Stay spiritually sensitive to see the “___________________”.

Luke 19:4-5a  “So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way.  When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up…”  [Jn 4:35]

Develop a life’s mission to __________________________.

Luke 19:5b-7 “… 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.  All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a ‘sinner.’”

______________ God to ________________________!

Luke 19:8-10  But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.”  Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. 10  For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.”
