Have you ever heard the term, “up a creek without a paddle”? Not really a place that we ever want to find ourselves, right?
Let me share with you a story in the Bible about a man who found himself “up a tree without a savior.” It is a great illustration of the process of salvation. It’s the story of a short chief tax collector named Zacchaeus. You may read the story in Luke 19. I have preached on it several times.
