It's Day 44 and we're in Luke 19.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 16 - It's enormously encouraging to know that God wants us to live productive, fruitful lives - lives that produce ten-fold, a hundred-fold. It's also enormously challenging to know that God expects great things from our lives through the power of the Spirit.
- Verses 8-9 - It seems odd that Jesus claims salvation for Zac here even though he hasn't made a traditional "confession of faith." I think that what Zac does is an indication of the internal change of heart that has happened. At the end of the day, it's not saying a particular set of words that gets us right with God - it's grabbing onto Jesus and wanting Him in our hearts to change our lives that matters.
