This is how God works and He gives us concrete images of spiritual reality. We can see the fruit coming on the plants and understand the picture He gives us of our spiritual fruit coming from the nature he planted in our heart. The need to cultivate, prune, water, feed and nourish these plants for the coming fruit. Jesus says in John 15, I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing….
I want this, to be connected, to be part of Him, to be in Him…Walking with Him and content with being a part of the bigger picture. Jesus has a master plan, and He is letting us “in” as His friends! Wow….
