1. Transplantation: Like a tree (simile) planted by streams of water.
2. Stability: Trees planted by water are constantly fed and nourished by the stream and become strong.
3. Fruit: That nourishment produces fruit. What is the fruit that we see in the life of a Christian as a result of knowing God in the Bible? Good works, as evidenced in Philippians 1:9-11 as well as Galatians 5:22-23.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23 ESV)
Hope in the Psalms
Remember that the reason for the study of Scripture is transformation, not information. We study the Bible to know God and be changed by God. Aren’t you thankful that God uses the Scriptures to change us? Even if you can’t see how you are changing, by God’s grace, through the power of the Holy Spirit, the instruction of the Scriptures, obedience and the encouragement of the church, you are.
