Where's the Fruit?

Weekly Spiritual Vitamin
"Where's the Fruit?"
Luke 13:6-9  6 He also spoke this parable: “A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. 7 Then he said to the keeper of his vineyard, ‘Look, for three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and find none. Cut it down; why does it use up the ground?’ 8 But he answered and said to him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it. 9 And if it bears fruit, well. But if not, after that[a] you can cut it down.’” (NKJV)
Back in the early 1980s there was a popular Wendy's television commercial made famous for the slogan, "Where's the Beef?" This famous marketing campaign was a way for Wendys to throw "shade" on the other fast-food chains for the lack of "beef" in their burgers. When a person is looking for a burger, their focus is not on the size of the bun, the quantity of the pickles, or the quality of the lettuce, tomatoes, and onions! The quality of the burger is always based on the "beef"! 

Our devotional this morning is about a man that came to his fig tree looking for fruit, but repeatedly found none for three years! Perhaps the tree had a sturdy trunk, good size, pretty leaves but once again none of that matters if there is no fruit! The question is what can be said of our lives when the Master looks upon us? Does Jesus have to ask the question, "Where's the fruit?" Is this a question that He has to ask year after year after year? Now that we have completed the twenty-one day fast and also have come to the end of the first thirty-one days of 2018, we must ask ourselves the question, "Where's the fruit?"

If there is no fruit, let's take the next month of 2018 to dig around our spiritual tree and begin the fertilization process through the Word of God and the power of prayer! In our lives, we must allow the Holy Spirit to penetrate our hearts. This stirs change. Although the complete evidence of change doesn’t occur overnight, we must continue in the Word.
As we reflect on today’s devotion, may we remember the importance of continually feeding our spirit-man. It is imperative that it is fed on the right nutritional diet. Fruit is filled with important sources of vitamins and minerals and so is the Fruit of the Spirit. As such, if we feast on the Word and allow the Holy Spirit to penetrate our hearts, then it won’t be long before the evidence of what we are consuming begins to show forth.
Have a Happy Wednesday!!!

All men were created to fulfill their duty as an individual. Man tends to exert a lot of effort just to fulfill their civic duties. And all of that hard work was being paid by endless happiness. And for me, the fruit of man’s success is that, the love and support that they will receive for a long time. That is very immeasurable by any things in this world. So as a man we should do our best to be a successful man that we can, for us to harvest those fruits made of our success.

The fruit described in this blog is the never ending devotion to one thing. Even though a tree that is as sturdy and as healthy described in this blog couldn't bare a fruit, but the man didn't give up and kept on waiting for the tree to bear fruit, although we don't know the end of the story. The message seems really clear that no matter what happens don't lose faith. We should trust the importance of having faith in something and believing that it will come true

The fruit of love comes from the hands of God. Only he is capable of such feeling that our human senses could simply not comprehend. This is why our entire human lives is a trial. God tests our worth if we are deserving enough to eat his fruit. So I always believe to be as loving s God was because when my soul is sent to Him for judgment, I can say that I did my best to follow His example through His son, Jesus Christ.
