Good morning people whose fruitfulness results in pruning and more growth
John 15:2 NIV I (Jesus) am the true vine, and My Father is the gardener. He (The Father) cuts off every branch (Believers) in Me (Jesus) that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit He prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.
There are branches in Jesus (Believers) that are cut off (removed) and there are branches in Jesus (Believers) that are pruned (cleaned).
In our lives, there will either be a removing of the life flow (cutting off from Jesus), or a removing of that which could hinder the life flow (pruning that which will prevent greater fruitfulness).
The choice is ours…well, it’s actually the gardener’s choice (the Father’s choice), but His choice is based on our choices.
“So, what are we to do?”
It’s simple. Stay close to God; stay connected to Jesus, stay sensitive to the Holy Spirit, stay responsive to the Father.
This posture, this position, this pursuit in life will result in fruitfulness and ongoing connection.
