Luke 19:5-6 (NLT) 5 When Jesus came by, he looked up at Zacchaeus and called him by name. “Zacchaeus!” he said. “Quick, come down! For I must be a guest in your home today.” 6 Zacchaeus quickly climbed down and took Jesus to his house in great excitement and joy.
YOU are made in God’s image. And so is your boss, your children, your spouse … and even your enemy!
With that said, believers should also be forgivers and be patient with the Holy Spirit’s work in the lives of everyone around us. Just look into the eyes of those in your world. INVITE them to be part of your space as you truly spread and share your faith with them.
Jesus was unpredictable to those around Him, yet when you look at His actions, you truly see a compassion and model (mentor) to allow people into His world. When we read more and more about the life of Christ, we understand that the unexpected actions of His life is not so unfamiliar to those who truly know Him. His example shows us that we should “invade the space” of others not to condemn, but to share truth and the love that comes from our Father, God.
