Scripture: Luke 13:  If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.’ ”
Observation: It is our calling to bear fruit. If we are truly saved and gave our heart to Jesus we would bear fruit. It would be our desire to use the gifts and talents given us to glorify God. We can not call ourselves Christians and not bear fruit. If we stay disobedient and refuse to honor God with what He has given why would He want to waste the soil on us when someone else is willing to bear fruit.
Application: I need to make an effort each day to do something that will glorify God. People around me should be able to enjoy the fruit of my love for Christ. There should be no doubt to others that my life is planted in the richness of Christ.
Prayer: Dear Lord enrich me with your word and guide me this day and direct me in your presence to show others by what I do and say that I belong to you.
