Embracing the Radical Love of God

Embracing God’s radical love begins with choosing to go all in as a follower of Jesus.

Encounter, Embrace, Embody the Radical Love of God

Zacchaeus – Luke 19: 1-10

Something was missing

Jesus saw him

“Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.”

Why Zacchaeus?

Jesus knew him

Jesus loved him

“Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.” Luke 19: 8

“Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.”


The Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.

Evel Knievel - “My biggest regret was that I didn’t give my life to Jesus earlier. Lee, you have to tell people, Don’t put this off, don’t put this off.”

Embrace the radical love of God / Help others discover this radical love

The Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.
