Found Forever


How can one NAME have such power

"the blind receive [their] sight and the lame walk,

the lepers are cleansed [by healing] and the deaf hear,

the dead are raised, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.

 And blessed [joyful, favored by GOD] is

he who does not take offense at ME [accepting ME as the MESSIAH and trusting confidently in MY message of salvation]” (Matthew 11:5-6 AMP)

How can one NAME call so much attention to HIMSELF that even the lost seek HIM~

"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 because he was short he could not see over the crowd.

 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see HIM, since JESUS was coming that way" (Luke 19: 3-4)

How can one NAME have such power to seek out every single person

as if they are the only single person on earth no matter what they have done~

"When JESUS reached the spot, HE looked up and said to him,

'Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today'" (Luke 19:5)

How can one NAME have such power

to be ridiculed by others

who can't believe that HE would even pay attention to the one who was such a sinner~

"All the people saw this and began to mutter,

'HE has gone to be the guest of a sinner'" (Luke 19: 7)

Oh the power of THIS MAN who looks at the lost,

who looks at the sinner & who looks at me with one goal in mind~

"For the SON of Man came to seek and to save the lost" (Luke 19:10)

Oh the power of THIS MAN to do the impossible~

"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” (Luke 19:8).

So who was seeking whom?

If Zacchaeus, an obvious sinner to all,

would climb a tree to catch a glimpse of this

MAN with the NAME of JESUS

who saw who first?

JESUS immediately caught a glimpse of this obvious sinner

and chose him to dine with.

I wasn't a tax collector,

but I was a sinner (and oh still have my sinning moments)

who was lost and seeking to be saved

by the ONE who didn't look upon me with condemnation,

but

instead invited HIMSELF into my home

and has never left.

If only everyone would climb a tree to catch a

glimpse of JESUS,

because a glimpse is all you need

to fall in LOVE with the ONE who so LOVES~

just because

JESUS seeks everyone

no matter what they are doing in the midst

with one goal in mind~

to SAVE them from themselves

because

"For the SON of Man came to seek and to save the lost" (Luke 19:10)

Oh I am glad that I didn't have to climb a tree to catch a glimpse of

JESUS

because HE found me at rock bottom

because

"For the SON of Man came to seek and to save the lost" (Luke 19:10)

Therefore

"I SPEAK JESUS" (listen to the song below)
