The Thorn and The Brier

“Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”

Isaiah 55:13

I have sown the thorn and the brier, yet my gracious Master and King has pulled these from the garden of my heart and planted the fir and myrtle in their place. My heart was a landscape of death, but now (by His grace) it is a garden of life – the planting of the Lord.

The replanting of the field of my heart is a generous and gracious gift afforded me through Christ. He can do the same for you, my friend – He can change your heart as well.

There is no one that Christ cannot redeem.

God’s grace is more than a theory; it is, indeed, a fact of heaven and proven again and again on this earth. Transformed lives are the reality of its power.

Through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we can become new creations – old things have passed away; behold, all things are become new – 2 Corinthians 5:17.

No one is worthy of this great kindness, no one is worthy of this great love, and no one is worthy of this great mercy.

By His grace, we change.

It is He who justifies all repentant believers by faith in Christ’s death and resurrection; seeing we have been justified by faith, we should humbly rejoice in the Lord, always.

What fruits are produced from the garden of your heart? Are they thorns and briers or firs and myrtles?

Jesus can transform anyone’s life; He can change your heart. He can cultivate His beauty within you through the power of His Spirit received by faith in His Gospel.

Thank you, Jesus

May you know Christ’s grace and truth.
