“By your fruits you are known.”
What does this mean? We will have to go deeper to answer this question.
What about the fig tree described by Jesus?
We are preparing for a new season; a mirror reflection of who we are and being “of” this world.
The time is near for our convergence with the Holy Shekinah Spirit, “when the branches become green and tender” and the tree starts putting out leaves, it means that “summer is near”.
Pentecost will be Sunday, June 4, 2017. How do we prepare for this event?
Whether in ministry or in life, we are called to be and Jesus asks us to bear “good fruit.”
Take a moment to reflect: What I am doing in my spiritual life or community to bear fruit?
At times, we fall short of this goal; relying on our own power to see life through that stems from unrealistic expectations that did not begin with God, but grew from our own “vain imaginings.”
Where is my foundation? Do I have my feet firmly planted on the ground? We don’t have branches, leaves or trunks because we have not laid the foundation by preparing and planting seed (more on this next week).
“Fruit of the Vine will become one’s spiritual food.”
