The Gardener

The Gardener…

The Garden Tomb. Did you ever realize how strange, how unique, how contradictory, and radical it is. What’s a Garden? A place where life begins. What’s a Tomb? A place where life ends. So what’s a Garden Tomb?

It’s a place where life ends… and begins. Jesus wasn’t just put into a tomb, but into a Garden Tomb. Why? Because after the end of His life, would come new life – the Resurrection.

As everything began in a Garden, so now everything begins anew in a Garden Tomb. In the Garden Tomb is a cosmic mystery. The only way we can get to the Garden, is by first going to the tomb – only by dying to the old, can we live.

So don’t be afraid to let the old die, or to crucify the self, or to count your old life as gone. It’s nothing to be afraid of. It will only lead to blessing in the end, and it’s the only thing that does.

Do it as soon as you can. For the way of the Cross always leads to the Garden Tomb, and the Garden Tomb, always leads to life.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

What blessing, breakthrough, victory do you think God wants to bring in your life? What has to end, die, or be crucified for that to happen? Go to the Garden Tomb.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
