Luke 19:5-6 And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and said to him, "Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for I must stay at your house today." So he hurried and came down and received Him joyfully.
Zacchaeus, a tax collector in Jericho, is up a tree. Jesus doesn't care about that. He needs to speak to Zacchaeus, so He stops right there by the tree and invites Himself to lunch. Zacchaeus can hardly get out of the tree quickly enough. You know the rest of the story.
The question is, are you stuck up a tree? If you are, then you need to know that Jesus doesn't care about that. He still wants to speak to you. In fact, He has probably coughed several times and asked about lunch already. You need to get out of that tree - it doesn't matter how nice or nasty the tree is, or how you got up there - and invite Jesus home for lunch right now.
