One Tree

Leadership Key: A great Christian leader can graft together all kinds of different people, Jews and Gentiles, man and woman into the oneness of Jesus Christ. We have an enormous, old, walnut tree in our front yard. An English and black walnut was grafted together at least 200 years ago: yet it is one tree. The tree has one root system which nourishes both varieties of nuts from the same tree.

One side of the tree has leaves that are pointy and the other side has a more rounded tip leaf yet it is one mammoth tree not two. God looks at us not as either Jew or Greek, man or woman but as His beloved children, all from His root systems. Galatians 3:28, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
