When Jesus became man, God decided he won’t look at humanity from the window of eternity. He wanted to take it and drink it all. He’s not standing by. He will walk. He will ride. On a young donkey yes. But he did ride. To tell us that he wants no barriers between us and him. No glass pane. No chasm of up there and down below. He became real. A person. A friend.
Let us start our journey with Jesus. Let us begin our path to discovery. Let us ride to encounter.

This column chronicles Margaux’s faith journey. How she remembers Christ everyday, following what he said on the night he was betrayed: when he took bread, and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me”; and then went for the wine and said, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” (1 Corinthians 11:24-25)
He just wanted to see Jesus, that’s all. However, he just didn’t see the Christ but found a new life. Up on a sycamore tree, the tax collector Zacchaeus had his change of heart – his metanoia. He went down from the tree with a repenting heart willing to be generous to others and to welcome Jesus. As we continue waiting for Him, let’s take time to stay up on our sycamore tree – our religious experiences. Let it be an opportunity for us to learn more about our faith. Let’s answer questions as we journey together.
