Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

“And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see Him: for He was to pass that way“ (Lk 19:4).

Many people run their spiritual race without any aim or target, but Zacchaeus ran along the very route Jesus was to take. Dear child of God, you may be running this spiritual race, but are you running along the road Jesus is taking? That alone can help you to meet Him and see Him face to face.

The Lord is eager to show you the way He is taking. If you will stop in your tracks and ”see and ask” for the right way, ”thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it” (Isa 30:21). So, set your heart towards the highway (Jer 31:21); turn your face towards it (Jer 50:5). Like the Psalmist, show the Lord your eagerness to walk in His way - ”I will run the way of Thy commandments!” (Psa 119:32). ”Seek and ye shall find!”
The word ‘Zacchaeus’ means ‘white’ or ‘purity.’ Jesus takes the road to Zion and New Jerusalem, the road to the Holiest of Holiest. So dear reader, if you do not love holiness, you cannot go His way. ”Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God” (Matt 5:8).
