In Exodus, Moses cried out to God that the water was unfit to drink, bitter. God advised him to throw a tree into the bitter water to make it sweet. Galatians say anything
hung on a tree is curse and Jesus became the curse for us to give an abundant life. He took the curse of the law. Without salvation a bitter life of hell, death and destruction.
The tree that use to be a curse, give hope, the cross. Salvation, a second chance turning a bitter life of destruction, death, hell to an eternal life of happiness in the kingdom of God. What was bitter, the crucifixion of Christ and the Cross curse, is now our hope for salvation and to have a sweet life, a second chance. If you live for Jesus Christ, he turns a bitter eternal death to a sweet eternal life. The bitter become sweet!
