    THE TREE OF LIFE

    She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.
    PROVERBS 3:18

    In the Garden of Eden stood two trees: the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and the tree of life. There were other trees, but these were the two most important. God forbide Adam and Eve to eat from the tree of knowledge, but they disobeyed and ate from it anyway. The story goes that Adam and Eve were exciled from the garden due to their disobedience. Was it for punishment that God made Adam and Eve leave the garden, or was it mercy?

    God doesn't want any of us to suffer, especially eternally. His action with Adam and Eve made it impossible for them to eat from the tree of eternal life, thus ensuring that they could not live forever in their fallen state. In His infinite love, God provided us with another way. He gave us a new tree of life, His Son, Jesus Christ.

    Christ died to undo the harm done by Adam and Eve's disobedience. Once He reconciled us to God, God invited us to once more share in the fruit of the tree of life. Through Christ, we have the promise of eternity in God's heavenly home. It is with this promise that we truly attain wisdom.

    Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You, O Lord, For giving us the chance to have eternal life. Through Your love in the life, death, and resurrection of Your Son, Jesus Christ, We have come to know Your glory. Amen and Amen.

    Blessings to all, Judy <a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/17/17_1_22.gif' border=0></a>
