PRUNING IS GOOD
John 15:2,4“He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. Remain in me and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself, it must remain in the vine.”
The Scene: A tall pine tree with some of its branches missing, representing God’s children whom He prunes to make them stronger and better.
Jesus tells us,”Do not grumble or complain when I prune you, my children.” For pruning makes the remaining growth stronger (maturity in the Holy Spirit) and removes the dead, diseased growth (sin). (See Philippians 2:13)
