Our Worship, November 3, 24th Sunday After Pentecost
The Lord Comes to Save and Call Us to Himself by the Tree of His Cross. God will judge “those who do not obey the gospel” (2 Thess. 1:8), but “when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven” (2 Thess. 1:7), He will “be glorified in his saints” (2 Thess. 1:10). For by His cross, you are “considered worthy of the kingdom of God” (2 Thess. 1:5). Therefore, “give ear to the teaching of our God” (Is. 1:10), and “let us reason together” by faith in His Gospel (Is. 1:18). “Make yourselves clean” (Is. 1:16), not by “the blood of bulls, or of lambs, or of goats” (Is. 1:11), but by the blood of Christ. His salvation comes to you by grace, as it came to Zacchaeus. That man sought “to see who Jesus was,” but he could not “because he was small in stature” (Luke 19:3). It is by way of a tree that Zacchaeus is found by the One he sought, for Jesus Himself “was about to pass that way” (Luke 19:4). The Lord calls Zacchaeus down and goes “in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner” (Luke 19:7). So also, He visits us as sinners, securing eternal redemption for us through the tree of His holy cross.
