Transcript

  • 1. Palm Tree Christians
  • 2. Psalm 92:12-13
    Good people will prosper like palm trees, and they will grow strong like the cedars of Lebanon. They will take root in your house, Lord God, and they will flourish.
  • 3. THE PALM TREE BREAKS THE TIES
    Psalm 107:13-15
    You were in serious trouble, but you prayed to the LORD, and he rescued you. He brought you out of the deepest darkness and broke your chains. You should praise the LORD for his love and for the wonderful things he does for all of us.
  • 4. THE PALM TREE WILL BEND BUT NOT BREAK
  • 5. THE PALM TREE WILL BEND BUT NOT BREAK
  • 6. THE PALM TREE WILL BEND BUT NOT BREAK
    Col. 2:6-7
    Christ Brings Real Life
    You have accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord. Now keep on following him.
    Plant your roots in Christ and let him be the foundation for your life.
    Be strong in your faith, just as you were taught. And be grateful.
  • 7. THE PALM TREE CAN WITHSTAND ABUSE
    The heart of the ordinary tree is dead.
    The vulnerable area of an ordinary tree is the outside.
    The heart of the palm tree is alive.
    The life of the palm tree is on the inside.
  • 8. THE PALM TREE NOT ONLY SURVIVES BUT FLOURISHES IN THE DESERT
    Jeremiah 17:8
    He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
  • 9. A GROUP OF PALM TREES FORMS AN OASIS
    Romans 12:13
    Take care of God's needy people and welcome strangers into your home
  • 10. THE OLDER THE PALM TREE THE SWEETER THE FRUIT
    Psalm 92:14
    “They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;”
  • 11. THE PALM TREE CANNOT BE GRAFTED
    Romans 12:1-2 2
    Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
  • 12. THE PALM TREE IS AN EVERGREEN
    John 16
    God loved the people of this world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who has faith in him will have eternal life and never really die.
  • 13. The palm grows slowly, but steadily, from century to century, uninfluenced by those alternations of the seasons which affect other trees. It does not rejoice overmuch in winter's copious rain, nor does it droop under the drought and the burning sun of summer. Neither heavy weights which people place upon its head, nor the importunate urgency of the wind, can sway it aside from perfect uprightness. There it stands, looking calmly down upon the world below, and patiently yielding its large clusters of golden fruit from generation to generation.”
    Dr. Thomson
