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.

On Thursday:

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.

Am I?
