Climb Your Tree

1 Jesus entered Jericho and made His way through the town. There was a man there named Zacchaeus. He was the chief tax collector in the region, and he had become very rich. He tried to get a look at Jesus, but he was too short to see over the crowd. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree beside the road, for Jesus was going to pass that way. When Jesus came by, He looked up at Zacchaeus and called him by name. “Zacchaeus!” He said. “Quick, come down! I must be a guest in your home today.” Zacchaeus quickly climbed down and took Jesus to his house in great excitement and joy. ~ Luke 19:1-6NLT

Jesus was passing through Jericho when Zacchaeus heard Jesus would soon be walking by. He knew that his height was an obstacle, but he wanted to see Jesus with everything that was in him. Zacchaeus didn’t let this obstacle keep him from seeing Jesus. No. Zacchaeus climbed a tree so that he might be able to see Jesus when He walked by. This is the same kind of determination we need to have.

Today, we all have obstacles. We all have something keeping us from seeing Jesus, but we all have a tree that we can climb. In fact, Jesus isn’t walking by. He isn’t passing through and then leaving our city. Jesus is knocking on the door of each and every one of our hearts. He’s calling to us. He’s begging us to follow Him. Today is the day of Salvation; tomorrow is promised to no man.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Climb Your Tree.
