Throughout the Bible we are given beautiful descriptions of a river with fruitful trees growing along the banks of it. This picture of God’s creation is also a beautiful description of our relationship with Jesus.
Jesus is that river. He is our source of life. The fruitful trees are us, followers of Christ. We gain life and strength because our roots are connected to Him. To know that Jesus, the River of Life, is supplying our need for survival is humbling. Rooted in Him we can be found not only living but growing and producing fruit. He is the Giver of Life and we are the recipients, flourishing under His care.
If we have a desire to see God in His creations then we can learn so much about ourselves and The Creator. We will find ourselves drawing closer to Him, in awe of the beauty and symbolisms of His creativity.
