Garden of Death – Garden of Life

10 Aug

Garden of Death – Garden of Life…

History begins in a garden; in Genesis, in the Garden of Eden. The garden from which life came. You plant life in a garden and so God planted human life in a garden.

But from that garden did not come life, but sin. And from sin, came death. What does this have to do with the resurrection? Where did it take place? It took place in a garden; a garden tomb.

It seems contradictory when a garden is a place of life, and a tomb is a place of death. Why a garden tomb? Because everything began in a garden. But from that garden, everything died.

And so Jesus, to bring redemption, starts where it was left off. The promise of man ended with death; a garden tomb. Jesus brings new life in a garden tomb because that is redemption. The power to take the failed promise of life and bring new life.

No matter how hopeless that part of your life may be – do not despair. For Jesus is the one who will bring forth life, from your garden tomb.

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace. Ephesians 1:7

Bring that hopeless part of your life, that death, that sorrow, that impossible part, to Jesus so that He will restore you from your brokenness into new life today.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
