The Second Garden

29 Jan

The Second Garden…

The fall of man happened in the Garden of Eden, the garden of life. Man was surrounded by life inside a garden of life. And yet in a garden of life, he died – it all happened in a garden.

On the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene ran to the tomb and found it empty–the resurrection. That’s the beginning of our faith. What kind of tomb was it? It was a garden tomb, a tomb inside a garden. Redemption took place in a garden.

If the fall of man happened in a garden, so too the rising of man must also happen in a garden. Death came from the first garden, but true life comes from the second garden, where this first life is finished, where everything new comes alive.

So don’t go after what you see with your eyes or feel with your flesh–there’s no life there. Seek the things of Jesus, the life that is deeper than life; the love that’s deeper than love.

Come to this second garden–the garden tomb. For in the first Garden of Life, we died, and we can only die. But in the Garden of Death, the tomb, we rise to life.

Jesus said to her, ” I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die.” John 11:25

Seek out the eternal and lasting things today. Don’t waste time pursuing temporary pleasures of earthly desires. Go after God’s own heart.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
