Absolutely! Just incredible. Shows the hunger people had - and still have - for hearing the Gospel when God places it on their hearts.

Get Down Out of That Tree

You already know the story. Or the song at least. Zacchaeus knew that Jesus was coming. He wasn’t the tallest guy around, so he felt like he needed to get a better vantage point. He proceeded to climb a tree.

When Jesus did come by, he said to Zacchaeus “Get down immediately. I’m staying at your house.” Zacchaeus was so affected by his encounter with Christ that he gave away half his possessions.

Aren’t we all like Zacchaeus? We feel a little lower than everybody else, as if we aren’t worthy to breathe the same air as other people. So we find some little prop, some little human way to get a tiny advantage or leg up on other people. When it comes time to meet God, we think these things will help us.

Jesus sees right through it. He tells us to come down immediately. Human striving might work for awhile in the workplace or the family or social settings. But in the spiritual realm it doesn’t work at all. What does work? Having a face-to-face encounter with Jesus. After meeting Jesus, Zacchaeus was never the same.

Not long after that, Jesus died on the cross. One of the words for “cross” is sometimes translated as “tree”. It reminds me that when Jesus was crucified, he took on all our human pride and striving along with our failures. When he came down from that tree, he was changed. And he gave all of us a chance to be changed too.

My favorite part of the Zacchaeus story is that Jesus went over to Zacchaeus’ house. That’s the kind of relationship he wants to have with all of us. Not one where he has to look through all our human striving and problems, but where he can come to our house - our heart - and meet with us face to face.

Whatever kind of tree you’ve built for yourself, Jesus is asking you to get down. He’s coming to your house today.
