TITLE: Tree of Life

In the Garden of Eden, the Lord provided the tree of life. The tree was His provision for immortality. Adam and Eve were given the tree as a blessing.

Genesis 2:9 says, "In the middle of the Garden was the tree of life and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. " The tree of knowledge became a curse for Adam and Eve.

God told Adam he could eat of any tree except for the tree of knowledge of good and evil. If Adam ate of it, he would die.

The tree of life was a constant reminder that immortality was a consequence of obedience. As long as Adam and Eve didn't eat of the tree of knowledge, they had access to the tree of life. When they disobeyed, death came to them.

Romans 5:17 states through Adam sin entered the world. Through Christ, salvation came.

Those who accept Christ as Savior because of His sacrifice for sin on the cross will see the tree of life again. Revelation 21:1-2 says, "The tree of life stands in the middle of the holy city, the new Jerusalem. It's water is the constant flow of everlasting life from God's throne to God's people."

Genesis and Revelation act as bookends for Christians. God provided the tree of life in the beginning and in the end. For Christians, the tree of life awaits.

A very good reminder that the tree of life awaits for Christians.

I am thankful that I finally obey Christ and was baptized for the forgiveness of my sin and was given the gift of the Holy Spirit as a down payment or guarantee of eternal like.

Keep up the good work.

Oh how I look forward to seeing that tree. I enjoyed this simple, but theologically dense, article. In your Revelation reference, though, I believe it should be "its" instead of "it's."
