The Tree of Life

Posted on Posted in Challenge, Choice, Trust

                                            …the way and the truth!

When God created man He breathed His life into man …

      And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground,
      and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life;
      and man became a living being.
      Gen. 2 7

And God provided what man would need to live that life.

      The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden,
      Gen. 2 9

But how do I get connected to this life?

      By going to the source of life!
      Accepting God as GOD!
      Accepting Jesus as Lord!
      Accepting the Holy Spirit as helper, teacher and guide!

Sounds great, but where is this life God promised us?

      Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life.
      No one comes to the Father except through Me.
      John 14 6

Jesus is the tree of life, and He himself said …

      I have come that they may have life,
      and that they may have it more abundantly.
      John 10 10

So as I truly make Jesus Lord in my life,
… I will be drawing from the Tree of Life,
and as I make Him Lord of my future,
… by bringing every thought and decision under His Lordship,
Jesus, the Tree of life, will expose the tree of good and evil!

      For you died to this life,
      and your real life is hidden with Christ in God.
      Col 3 3
