“I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”
Before repentance we are a tree bearing no fruit. We must repent and then we will bear fruit. When we do we will not perish and be cut down.
I want to conintue to grow in Jesus everyday. When I see others who are barren of fruit, I’ll pray that God would give them more time before cutting them away from the vine, giving them the opportunity to repent and bear fruit.
Lord, I pray, I would not stray from Your ways. That I would continue to bear good fruit, great fruit even, Lord. Have patience with those who turn from You, and continue to have patience with me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
