Today’s Reading: John 15
(Please read John 15: 1 – 27 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog.)
Please click the links below to John 15:
“He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes.” John 15: 2
Be cut or be pruned, that is the question. There had been times in my life that I didn’t care whether I might be cut but I definitely didn’t want to be pruned! I did not understand that Jesus prunes us so that we can bear more fruit!
If we link the message of Chapter 14 to 15, then we understand why we have to face so many troubles and problems. Those times make us know we can’t do things alone, we need Jesus along! That’s why those disciples of Jesus had to wait in Acts 1 until the Holy Spirit came in Acts 2. Then they could do anything in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Do you want to be cut or be pruned?
Dear Lord Jesus,
I am willing to be pruned by you that I can bear more fruit, and much fruit. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
