God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, "I love you."

— Billy Graham

Luke 19:10 — The Son of Man came to find lost people and save them.

Proximity: To be close. 

Luke 23

41 We deserve to die for our crimes, but this man hasn’t done anything wrong. 

42 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your Kingdom.”

43 And Jesus replied, “I assure you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

Can you remember the day that Jesus saved you? 

Luke 19 

1 Jesus was going through the city of Jericho. 

2 In Jericho there was a man named Zacchaeus. He was a wealthy, very important tax collector. 

3 He wanted to see who Jesus was. There were many others who wanted to see Jesus too. Zacchaeus was too short to see above the people. 

4 So he ran to a place where he knew Jesus would come. Then he climbed a sycamore tree so he could see him.

5 When Jesus came to where Zacchaeus was, he looked up and saw him in the tree. Jesus said, “Zacchaeus, hurry! Come down! I must stay at your house today.”

John 4 

5 In Samaria Jesus came to the town called Sychar, which is near the field that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. 

6 Jacob’s well was there. Jesus was tired from his long trip, so he sat down beside the well. It was about noon. 

7 A Samaritan woman came to the well to get some water, and Jesus said to her, “Please give me a drink.”

9 The woman was surprised, for Jews refuse to have anything to do with Samaritans.

16 “Go and get your husband,” Jesus told her.

17 “I don’t have a husband,” the woman replied. Jesus said, “You’re right! You don’t have a husband. 

18 for you have had five husbands, and you aren’t even married to the man you’re living with now. You certainly spoke the truth!”

Mark 2

1 A few days later, Jesus came back to Capernaum. The news spread that he was back home. 

2 A large crowd gathered to hear him speak. The house was so full that there was no place to stand, not even outside the door. While Jesus was teaching, 

3 some people brought a paralyzed man to see him. He was being carried by four of them. 

4 But they could not get the man inside to Jesus because the house was so full of people. So they went to the roof above Jesus and made a hole in it. Then they lowered the mat with the paralyzed man on it. 

5 When Jesus saw how much faith they had, he said to the paralyzed man, “Young man, your sins are forgiven.” 

Jesus came…

God can give you MORE than what you came for today.
