Five Minute Friday – Two Trees

This week’s word prompt ‘Tree’ immediately brought to mind…two trees which have impacted and affected all men

Tree of Knowledge of Good & Evil Tree from which the Cross of Christ  was Hewn
Adam Jesus Christ
Disobedience Obedience
Desired to be like God Denied Himself
My will be done Thy Will be done
His life brought death to all men His death brought life to the many
His sin brought separation from God He endured separation from God, bearing man sin and brought reconciliation
Sin reigned Grace reigned and abounded much more
Sin nature our inheritance Free Gift – Justification to all who believe
Transgression and death reigned He broke the reign of sin and death
Condemnation Righteousness
Separation from God Eternal life with God
Created in God’s image God Incarnate
Defeated Victory
Succumbed to temptation Tempted but did not sin
Faithless Faithful
Works Rest
Sinful Sinless
Bad news Good news

It’s another Saturday morn and I wanted to participate in Lisa-Jo Baker’s Five Minute Friday writing challenge.  Head over to her website “Lisa Jo Baker Tales from a Gypsy Mama”.  Be sure to read some of the entries from other writers.  I can promise you that you will be blessed.

  1. Nice presentation of the contrast of the two trees. I too wrote about one of them in my FMF post, although from a very different angle. Thank God for the Calvary tree! And thank you for your contribution to the discussion. It is unique…but I happen to be partial to Bible study. 😉
