Luke 19:1-10 Zacchaeus' Godly Sorrow

Zacchaeus was a picture of shame and an object of scorn as he perched from the tree to see Jesus. But he was able to come down from that tree in acceptance and honor. Why? Because Jesus was on his way to go up the tree for Zacchaeus. Jesus went up the tree to bear his (and our) scorn, shame, sin and rejection. He likewise leaves us with honor, dignity, purpose, and peace. This sermon was preached in Tacoma WA after the church had conducted a solemn assembly of communal godly sorrow. Luke 19:1-10
