PRUNED FOR GOD

John 15:1-4 ” I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.  You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.  Remain in me, and I will remain in you.  No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine.  Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.”

The Scene: Pine trees with pruned branches lying on the ground.

The Holy Spirit quickened His Word, “Like these trees, My people allow Father God to prune them, as they remain in Him. For we know that the pruning is for our own good and will help make us more fruitful (ready for service to do the work God has planned for us.)

Pruning by God is the removal of our sinful nature.  That leads to spiritual maturity, thus making us available to serve our God and King, Jesus Christ.
