I am the Real Vine and my Father is the Farmer.
He cuts off every branch of me that doesn’t bear grapes.
And every branch that is grape-bearing
he prunes back so it will bear even more.
John 15:1-2 The MessageOur Father will take care of the pruning...so long as we abide in Him. Our only job is to abide...He will grow the fruit. It is good to be reminded of the necessity of pruning...and abiding...on occasion!
Cool statue ... where did you find it ?ReplyDelete
Judy, I was just considering these very verses this morning...abide in Him...ReplyDelete
Sometimes we choose every other activity to do, other than abiding. Reminders of the fruit and the gardener are crucial for me. The lush, ripe, sweet fruit that I see everywhere in our county got that way from abiding on the limb or the vine, and always the pruning took place months or a year before. Great post!ReplyDelete
