As A Tree Planted
A Sermon on Psalms 1:3-4
He is like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.
The wicked are not so,
but are like chaff that the wind drives away. (ESV)
No man is born a Christian; nor can he make himself Christian; a Christian is the work of God; the work of the Holy Spirit in conversion; a new birth; a new life; the result of the operation of the Spirit in the believer.
