Three Trees

THREE TREES

One morning,

The air was crisp and still,

I saw on the horizon,

Three trees standing on a hill.

The two trees on the sides,

Shorter than the center one;

How they stood out,

In the rising sun.

A refuge for the birds,

In the time of storms,

A nesting place,

So peaceful and warm.

Seeing these trees,

So majestic standing in a row,

Took my mind back,

Two thousand years or so,

To a place called Calvary,

Where three wooden crosses,

Stood out plainly in a row.

On the outside crosses,

Hung two guilty thieves,

On the center cross,

Hung the only Son of God;

He was dying for you and me.

Jesus, was baring our sins,

So we could be set free.

My Observations [ Hope according to the Bible ]

OBJECTS OF OUR HOPE:  1 Thess.5:8— But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. Saints have the hope of salvation!

Gal.5:5—For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. We have our hope of complete and perfect righteousness!

  Titus 2:13– looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,          We have the hope of Christ’s glorious appearing!

 

Take courage. We walk in the wilderness today and in the Promised Land
tomorrow.  D. L. Moody       [ This concludes a brief study on hope ]
