ZACCHAEUS SERMON OUTLINES

by Rex Yancey

Zacchaeus was one of life's invisible people. It is not easy being short. He had probably heard all the short jokes in his day. ''Zacchaeus, you ought to be a Rabbi. At least your sermons would be short!'' Or, ''I feel sorry for short people. When it rains they are the last to know.'' I have a preacher friend on the Gulf Coast who is 6'7. He had a friend that would always ask him ''How's the weather up there!'' He got tired of it once and spit on his head. He said, ''It is raining!''...

We've been dealing with the issue of faith these past weeks…faith for both the Christian and for the church...and we saw that if we're going to please God, which should be our very desire, then we've got to demonstrate this thing called FAITH. We looked at 6 areas of faith that should be present in our lives IF we are really demonstrating our faith... 1) Faith is believing even before we see what God has for us...

It is thought-provoking that after three and a half years of the most sensational ministry exercised among people, Zacchaeus sought to see "Jesus, who he was." It might be assumed that every person in the country was aware of the identity of the Savior. If this tax-gatherer was unaware of the Lord's reputation, it must be concluded he had confined himself to a world of seclusion. He was the chief of the...

Today we are going to look at Luke 19:1, one of the most well known stories in the Bible. One of the favorites of boys and girls and that is the story of Zacchaeus, who climbed up a sycamore tree because he was short in stature. He couldn't see over the crowd when Jesus came to town. And he wanted to see Jesus. And today's message is entitled, "Liberation From Loneliness". We have been talking about "Living By Faith In A Culture Of Fear." There are many...

Verse 10 is a clear-cut statement of why Jesus came into this world. Jesus came from heaven into this world to seek and to save that which was lost. The first nine verses of the chapter give us a real life illustration of Jesus coming to seek and to save those who are lost. Along the way, Jesus encountered all kinds of people, and He saved all kinds of sinners. He met them in many places. Sometimes He met them along the seashore. At other times He met them at the dinner table...

Luke, chapter nineteen, give us an interesting story about a man by the name of Zacchaeus. Not much is known about Zacchaeus, except what is given to us in Luke's account. We know that he was a publican. In fact, vs.2 tells us that he was the ''chief among the publicans, and he was rich.'' A publican was a tax collector appointed by the Roman Government. In order to finance its powerful government, Rome levied heavy taxes on the Jewish people. Publicans were Jews who...

The truth is that God seeks out the lost, and He always has His heart tuned into the soul that desires to find Him. So often in our modern world our attention is drawn to so many things that we don't have the time to even think about our soul. The truth is however that nothing in this world can satisfy the spiritual needs of our soul except God. The Bible teaches us that the hungry heart to know God will find Christ making a house call! If you really desire to know God He will come...

I heard a story as a kid that has really stuck with me. Bird Dog: ''That dog is the only one who has actually seen the bird. The other dogs are just caught up in his excitement, but simply sharing in his excitement can't motivate them to keep going when the pursuit gets difficult.'' That reminds me of what happens in the church. A church is this big movement of people. A lot of people are excited, many are sacrificing, but a lot of people get so swept up in the...

Introduction: Luke was a doctor (Col 4:14). We easily forget that the medical profession has been around a long time. Consider a few of the New Testament references: Jesus says, "They that are whole have no need of a physician," shows that there were physicians in Galilee (Mt 9:12; Mk 2:17; Lk 5:31). In Nazareth Jesus quotes the proverb: "Physician, heal...

'Died, aged twenty; buried, age sixty; the sad epitaph of too many Americans. Mummification sets in on too many young men at an age when they should be ripping the world wide open. For example: Many people reading this page are doing so with the aid of bifocals. Inventor? B. Franklin, age 79.''The presses that...

My wife and I have had the privilege of visiting the Holy Land on two different occasions. One of the highlights of our trip was to visit the ancient city of Jericho. I have in my office a souvenir - a stone I picked up a few feet from the remains of the city. As our tour bus was driving through Jericho the driver pointed out a giant...

The story of Zachaeus is the all too familiar account of a sinner who happens to have a physical impairment or handicap, and because of that, they either are positioned in a place, or they position themselves in a place where they stand out from the crowd. Now we know that God can see a sinner, whether they are isolated in...

A man went for physical checkup and the nurse asked him how much he weighed. He held his stomach in and replied, "160 lbs." She got him on the scales, weighed him and said: "No, your weight is 166 lbs. The nurse then asked him how tall he was. Standing very straight he answered, "5 feet 10 inches." The nurse measured him and...

Easter is coming fast! So we're taking the season of Lent to prepare our hearts by listening to the teaching of Jesus, and allowing his words to identify things that we need to repent of. And we mentioned this last week: if, when you think of repentance, it's a depressing thought, you're thinking about it wrong! Hebrews 12:1 says ...

'Get tough on crime,'' ''Stricter sanctions,'' ''Hold 'em accountable,'' ''Zero-tolerance policy.'' We have all heard the slogans. They speak of force against those who do not measure up to established standards. The point behind them is to change the world. The means is force, coercion, power, and control. When Jesus talked about changing the...
