The difference a Tree makes.

"A tree in Paradise made us debtors to God:
a tree on Golgotha has wiped away our debt." - St Irenaeus

What a difference one tree can make!
The fruit on the tree in the Garden of Eden proved to be too enticing for Adam and Eve - their decision to eat from this tree brought death and punishment to all humanity.

The tree on Golgotha was not enticing for anyone, not even Jesus. However, in enduring the scandal of the Cross, Jesus offered us the fruit of freedom and forgiveness.

We get to choose which fruit we eat and from which tree?

Choose well....

Living in Grace,
