Pruning: The Application

True Vine

The purpose, relevance and value of the comparison between vine and child of God came originally from The Lord Jesus himself in the 15th chapter of the Gospel according to John. God, the Father, takes care of the vineyard. As a good gardener, He personally seeks to take the necessary steps for the plant to yield enough fruit. He works individually and directly with each branch. He removes some and prunes others. Sooner or later each one of us will experience our share of pruning: the cutting off dead wood, extra weight of bad habits and character. There are two encouraging facts: 1).- Pruning means being taken care of, looked after and tended by God.  2).- Pruning is done to producing-branches so that they produce “MORE FRUIT”.

Pruning might hurt, but it is the doorway to a promising crop production: Fruit and more fruit in our lives for the glory and delight of our God.

  1. Es contradictorio pensar en poda-dolor fruto-gozo pero estas dos emociones las experimento simultaneamente al darme cuenta lo que Dios está haciendo en mi vida. Gracias por compartir tu vida conmigo. Te quiero
