The Tree

The Tree

The Tree of Life was sealed up from the sight of man. It disappeared. And yet it’s not gone. It’s in our midst. It’s come back to us in the form of a tree.

The cross is the Tree of Life in disguise. It starts out looking like the Tree of Good and Evil, but it ends up being the Tree of Life. When you partake of the cross, it seems as if you’re partaking of death.

You take up your cross, die to self, surrender. But really, you’re partaking of the fruit of the Tree of Life. The cross seems tough–to love your enemy, to forgive, to sacrifice yourself. But when you partake of it, it ends up bringing life. The fruit of the Tree of Life; you die to self, you come alive, your tears have turned to joy.

Don’t be fooled, the cross only looks hard, but every time you partake of it, it’s going to bear you fruit. Love and joy and peace and faithfulness, gentleness, and goodness; for the cross is none other than the Tree of Life in disguise.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness. Galatians 5:22

Seek to be a giver of kindness and love for others. Look for ways to reveal God’s love and don’t expect anything in return.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
