Jesus is passing by me today, but I am stuck up in a tree.
He sees me, calls me down and says:
“Come down quickly, for today I must stay at your house.”
How am I going to receive Him?
With a feeling of dread and unworthiness, because I am such a sinner? A sinner who is afraid of His condemnation? Who is afraid because myself and others know I deserve it?
Or am I going to receive Him with:
Opening my heart, home, and all that I have to His love, for me?
And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man too [Zaccheus] is a descendant of Abraham. For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save what was lost.”
Luke 19: 9-10
