How to Have A Fruitful Life? Morning)
James 1:21 Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
This week theme’s is still about agriculture. But for today we are going to discuss weeds. You cannot prevent its growth and you cannot predict where it would grow. Everything you’ll ever know is: you cannot differentiate it from another plant. Sometimes those weeds and wild grass may be beautiful. They have colorful flowers or aesthetic appeal. But again, you’ll never know.
Only time could tell the difference. If some plants may take weeks or months to reach a certain height or bloom. Those weeds and brambles could massively invade your yard in mere days. Besides that, its root system is dense. If you don’t remove its root those weeds would just reappear months after.
His allurement is like weeds and brambles. It comes without prior notice and swiftly takes place in your heart. Then, how should I know? Wealth, status, comfort, luxuries are just to name a few. His allurement distracts our focus, becomes unproductive, and like weeds and brambles, lets our heart’s nutrients be sapped dry. These weeds and brambles could prevent our inner men to reach our fullest potential and bear more fruit. Now you know those brambles and weeds you can start to remove them from your life. Throw those into an inferno and you will bear fruit in no time.
For a tree could BEAR MUCH FRUIT, WEEDS and GRASS MUST BE REMOVED.
1. Do you have “weeds” and “wild grass” in your life? What are those?
2. How do they affect your spiritual growth and prevent you to be fruitful?
3. What are your commitments to remove those weeds and wild grass?
“Jesus Christ our LORD, forgive us if we let weeds and wild grass stunt our growth. Help us, LORD, to remove those and make You proud of our productivities and fruits. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
