"SAVING THE LOST"
Intro: The backdrop to the story, 18:31-34. Jesus is on final lap of His journey to Jerusalem to be crucified. As He approaches Jericho, a blind man calls out to Him. Now He is passing through Jericho, and we meet Zacchaeus.

4. Jesus knew he was lost.
III. THE NEXT SCENE IS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS.
A. What was said we do not know.
B. We do know the crowd is waiting outside.
1. They probably hear the roar of laughter coming from the feast. "He received Him joyfully."
2. There were also long periods where they heard nothing.
3. There was a murmuring among the crowd that He should be a guest of a Sinner.
C. After a time, the doors are opened and we hear Zacchaeus speaking, "The half of my riches I give to the poor.."
D. We hear Jesus respond, "This day, salvation has come to this house as he has become a son of Abraham", i.e., through faith.
E. We know that a man entered the house mastered by greed and emerges mastered by generosity.
F. A man entered the house with a chief passion to get and emerged with a chief passion to give.
G. You ask, "Do you believe in instantaneous conversion?" You bet.
H. He entered his house a sinner, he emerged a saint.
IV. THE EXPLANATION OF JESUS TO THE CROWD, "FOR THE SON OF MAN HAS COME TO SEEK.
A. When is a man lost?
1. Lost now, life wasted.
2. Lost eternally.
B. How is a man lost?
1. Born loser.
2. Tract with two questions.
a. What must I do to be saved?
b. What must I do to be lost?
3. "He that believeth not is condemned already, seeing he..."
