TREE OF LIFE
Proverbs 3:13,17 ” Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding…Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who embrace her; those who lay hold of her will be blessed.”
The Scene: Symbolic tree of life, looking like a cross.
Revelation 2:7 ” He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.”
Revelation 22:3 “On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.”
Jesus’ cross, on which he was sacrificed in obedience to His heavenly Father, was a tree of death to many. But to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the cross is the tree of life for all eternity, for all humanity who will accept Jesus’ atoning death and resurrection: John 3:15 “That everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.”
