I saw this tree the other day – this beautiful Australian Redgum.
It has three trunks in the one.
What an incredible and simple explanation of the community of the Godhead.
Three distinctly different but of the same life, the same origin, the same purpose.
Never before have I seen so clearly in nature, the revealing of this Holy Community, that is our God.
Father, Son, Holy Spirit.
No morphing of one into the other, no swapping and changing, no ending of the one and becoming the other.
You are so beautifully revealed Lord, in a tree.
Of-course You have revealed Your community in a tree. A Tree. A tree of life. A tree of death and holy sacrifice. A tree of which we are the branches. A tree on which You bear the fruit. A tree with leaves for the healing of the nations. A tree that shelters the birds of the air. A red tree. Stained with blood of love’s sacrifice. A tree in which the blood-sap pumps strong and pure through every vein and tiny sinew. A community of Life. A tree in which we have been grafted. A full and majestic, gigantic tree.
You Oh Lord, blow me away. Truly, You have revealed Yourself in the earth so that man is without excuse.
“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – His eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made,so that men are without excuse.” Romans 1:20
