“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.” – Revelation 2:7
There are two simple principles God gives us to live by. Do right and He will reward you. Do wrong and there will be consequences. This verse gives us, in the church age, purpose for today. Be an overcomer! That is one who obeys and does God’s will. Overcomers will be given the reward of eating from the tree of life in the paradise of God someday. This was a real tree in the Garden of Eden. After Adam and Eve disobeyed God by eating of the forbidden fruit, they were expelled from the garden so they would not eat from this tree and live in their sinful state forever. Those who have accepted Christ as their Savior and live for Him each day will have this privilege. Heaven is even better than garden of Eden, so let’s serve Him today and reap His reward forever.
