Moment With God Wisdom for the week Wisdom is the principle of life The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and whoever captures souls is wise. Proverbs 11:30 ESV We have become the offspring of the Tree of Life in Christ, that was introduced in the Garden of Eden. This Tree is reintroduced in the new creation of the born again believer. Our spirits were born again through the righteousness of God into the seed of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the vine seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven and he is the carrier of Righteousness. Whereas, we're the branch in the earth where the fruit of the righteous is produced. We have become the extension of the Tree of Life in the earth. There is also the tree of deception. Jesus cursed the fig tree because from a far, it had the appearance of life given fruit, but as Jesus came closer he recognized the deceitfulness of the fig tree and cursed it. The tree had yielded itself to satan like the serpent did in the garden. Nevertheless, the born again believer in Christ are the trees of life roaming in the earth to reveal the fruit of righteousness to the lost soul to partake and come to the knowledge of the Kingdom of God. This new creation is regenerated with the nature of God. So the born again believer can know how God conducts Himself; and because He has given the born again believer that same nature through Christ, his conduct in righteous living will capture souls. James 5:20 ESV states: Let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins. Righteous living makes you wise. .
