Easter will be celebrated on March 23, which is just a week and half away! This is the earliest Easter since 1913! (Easter is a different day each year because Passover is determined by the lunar & solar calendars).
So in preparation I thought I'd post the daily accounts in Christ life leading up to Easter.
Jesus is passing through Jericho on his way to the Passover in Jerusalem, hearing this the chief tax collector, a man named Zacchaeus, wants to see him for himself. Luke 19:1-10
Regardless of his past, Jesus was pleased with his attitude and generosity and counted him as a son of Abraham. Jesus purpose was to find and save people like Zaccheus.
Take a moment and give thanks that He came looking for you while you were lost. Ask Him to give you the desire to do the same.
After a short visit, He stopped to tell a parable the disciples had heard many times: The Parable of the Ten Minas .
Truth be told, not even His longest-term disciples figured out what this parable meant until about a year later. The point…Jesus is going away and wanted His disciples to be trustworthy in His absense.
