The Importance of Friendship

Luke 19: 1-10
Rev. Johnny Wong

1) People are looking for friends.
2 A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. 3 He wanted to see who Jesus was, but being a short man he could not, because of the crowd. 4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way. ~Luke 19: 2-4
2) Let’s make intentional efforts to reach out and be a friend to others.
5 When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today. 6 So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. ~Luke 19: 5-6
9 Jesus said to him, Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost. ~Luke 19: 9-10
