Life or knowledge?
"And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die."
After an enticing conversation man was persuaded and chose knowledge over life; causing spiritual death.
Think about that... Life IS to know God, personally! This IS the reason for our existence. Man was made for communion with God; fellowship. Yet by choosing knowledge by the forbidden fruit produced on that tree, sin entered and divided this beautiful union. We were created with a deep seeded hunger and thirst for Him, He IS Truth; His presence!
This separation has created a gap unquenchable by any other person, place or thing. Today, information & technology has increase more than ever yet the distance between man & God is just as outstanding! Man continues to know more, learn more and still just as the Word of God says, "Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth." 2 Timothy 3:7
So why can't we come to this desired knowledge by ever learning? No college, seminary, university nor vast amount of endless researching can fix a spiritual problem by human means!
Only One perfect man can quench a thirst far beyond anything within worldly reach or understanding. Jesus said, "I am the way, the TRUTH and the life..." He IS God in the flesh! Those who find Him, find life & truth! He also said "
But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life." John 4:14 "...he that believeth on me shall never thirst." John 6:35
Still to this day every person has the opportunity to accept Christ who died upon a tree, so we can be set free. How long will you thirst? Will you come to His well and thirst no more?
Will you choose life?
