In the Garden of Eden there was a living tree- the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. And from this tree came death. On the mountain of Jerusalem, there stood another tree with no roots, branches, leaves, or fruit – The Cross. It was a dead tree, yet, no tree has ever produced so much life or been so fruitful. From a living tree came death and from a dead tree comes life, salvation, redemption, and all the blessings of fruitfulness. Do not despise the way of the cross. Though it seems hard, sorrowful, and of death- more fruit comes out of living and walking in its way than any other way. The ways of this world may look alive, but they end up bearing the fruit of death. The way of the Cross- sacrifice, selflessness, living by faith and not sight, righteousness, and service to God- looks hard. But remember, it’s not just a cross, it’s a tree. Those who live under the shadow of this tree will not regret it, but will find life- a life that is filled with fruitfulness, joy, and blessings.
Scripture: 1 Tim. 2:3
TODAY’S MISSION – Spend time today meditating on the way of the cross, and then take up your cross and follow Him.
