Today’s Prayer Request:
A LETTER FROM THE FEBC PRESIDENT
“Jesus said to him, ‘Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost’” (Luke 19:9-10).
Many of us are familiar with the story of Zacchaeus, a man whose name means righteous, but whose actions did not live up to his name.
As Chief Tax Collector, Zacchaeus reaps the benefits of wealth and status…but this was not enough for him…he was still empty inside. However, when he heard that Jesus was coming to Jericho, something stirred in his heart and he took extraordinary steps to see for himself who Jesus was.
It’s interesting to note that hearing about Jesus causes Zacchaeus to recognize his need to hear from Jesus, to hear the words Jesus speaks directly to him. And we see that when Zacchaeus welcomes Jesus into his home, the impact is remarkable. The impossible becomes possible. Zacchaeus repents and chooses to follow Jesus. Where Jesus is present, grace and new life abounds.
Pray with us that FEBC listeners who may be hearing about Jesus today for the first time will choose to accept Him as their Lord and Savior.
Until all have heard,
Edward W. Cannon
President and CEO
