Leaves Reveal the Plans of God

text size A A A

A Bible verse compares us to Autumn leaves.

We are all infected and impure with sin. When we display our righteous deeds, they are nothing but filthy rags. Like autumn leaves, we wither and fall, and our sins sweep us away like the wind. - Isaiah 64:6 NLT

As the Bible comes to a close, leaves are mentioned in God's redemptive plan for the nations.

Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. - Revelation 22:1-2

This infographic by eReplacementParts reminds us, "Leaves don't actually change color. The pigments we see in the fall, anthocyanin and carotenoids, are always there. But the green color from chlorophyll hides them during the long days of spring and summer."

Is there anything in your life preventing people from seeing Christ in you?
