The Trees of Life and Knowledge of Good and Evil open the Word of God … separation from God follows.
The Tree of Life closes the Word of God … nourishment and healing unite God and man.
Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him; Revelation 22:1-3
Lovingkindness nourishes and heals the uplifted heart!
My prayer for you:
Lord, this is such a busy season. Prompt us to lift our faces towards Jesus and breathe in the warmth, nourishment, and healing of Your dear Son. Thank you for the gift of Jesus to a blind world. Open our eyes that we may see and understand the amazing love that You have for us that You would give Your Son to the world knowing that the world would beat Him and crucify Him. Yet, that was Your plan, so that we could be reconciled to You. Thank You, that those who are Yours are one with Jesus. Lord, Christmas is such an awesome time to remember why Jesus became a man. We love you, Father.
