The Dangers of unproductivity
John 15:2 "Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit."
I like to say that no farmer will be happy to see unproductive plants and crop in his farm, haven invested much on such plants or crop. If this is true then permit me to say in like manner that God is not happy seeing believers who are "connected" to Him living an unproductive or unfruitful life on earth.
Hear this: To be "connected" to God and remain unproductive is an abuse to "relationship". Our lives was designed to bring profits to the kingdom of God.
Hear what the Holy Ghost is saying to us this morning that the destiny of any tree that refuses to bring forth fruits is cut off from its source, no wonder Jesus cursed the fig tree for not bearing fruits, may that not be our portion. Galatians 5:22 tells us the types of fruits we are to produce (love, Joy, meekness, Peace, faith, goodness, gentleness, long-suffering and temperance). When all these are evident in your life then God Himself purges and shapes you for more productivity.
I pray for you today as you abide in Christ may your life bring forth the God kind of fruits both in season and out of season. Grace to abide and stay connected to God everyday receive it now in Jesus name.
