Since conversion is not my aim, I was uncomfortable and unsure of what to ask. He was there at the request of his girlfriend, and so I think he was uncomfortable as well. I am sad that we did not get to interact further, I think he had much to teach me. If you are an atheist, agnostic, or simply in a time of spiritual crisis, remember God believes in you!

About Max on Life
We need to understand that if God knows the worst about us, He also knows the best about us. If He knows the bad things that are hidden from the views of others, He certainly knows about all the good that others never see. God knows our potential to bring honor and glory to His Name.
People may misunderstand, pre-judge, and be quick to condemn, but God does not react that way. God knows we stand in need of compassion, love and pity. God knows what is in each one of us. No one else in all the world is in a better position to know and supply our needs than the God of Heaven.
He knows the battles that we have fought and lost. He knows the many times we have embraced some great ideal, and it has been smashed with the hammer-blows of reality. He knows there were times in life when we really purposed in heart to do our very best, to try and just pass through one day without marring the glory of God, and then we experienced a failure at the end of that day. God knows all about it. My friend, it is not my purpose to be overly optimistic, but I am persuaded there is something wonderful and magnificent and expansive about the grace of God to one who has faith in Jesus Christ.
It is so great that we in our weak finite minds are not really able to comprehend it all. God believes in you because He knows you thoroughly. Most of the people who looked up into the sycamore tree saw one object. They saw a despised tax collector who was a thief and a turncoat.

When Jesus looked up in the tree, He too saw a thief and a turncoat. Christ saw one who was despised by the citizens of that community because he was working for the interest of the Roman Empire.
And Zacchaeus was partly responsible for the suppression that the Jewish population was experiencing. But you know, Jesus saw the real person. He saw all that Zacchaeus was. He saw something in Zacchaeus no one else ever saw. He saw all that Zacchaeus might become. The same is true with you and me today. As people look to us, they only know a little bit about us from our conversation, our reaction, our personality, and what we do and say and think out loud. But God knows all about you and me today. He knows all that we are and He knows all that we can be.
Jesus walked one day beside the Sea of Galilee and saw four fishermen. Two of the fishermen were casting into the water and two were mending their nets. They were people just like us. We are told that at least one of them could be very profane.
God Believes in You Lyrics
Of course, their hands were calloused by hard labor. Their faces were bronzed by the wind and the sun. Their remarkable contribution to the history of man has been so notable that we find their names in the New Testament. Michelangelo, the great painter and sculptor, went one day to the quarry and selected an ugly, misshapen piece of marble.

Some of those who were looking on asked him why he chose that particular piece of marble. And he brought it about. Sometimes we look at people and see only the worst. Jesus looks at people and sees not only the bad but also the good, and He seeks to bring out the best in us. No one else dared dream that the selfish, little man by the name of Zacchaeus up in the sycamore tree someday would be an open-handed and generous-hearted benefactor. But Jesus saw all of this. Why did Jesus go home that day with Zacchaeus?
His fame had preceded Him. All that Jesus had to do was walk through the streets of Jericho, and He could generate an impromptu parade.
On that particular day, Jesus could have been the dinner-guest of any prestigious or reputable person in the city of Jericho. But instead, He chose to go home with the most despised, rejected citizen of the community. Why did He do it? There can only be one answer.
