Lessons from the Fig
Who needs my fruits-1
Mark 11:13 “And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not [yet].”
Mark 11:14 “And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.”
In this piece, the Holy Spirit will be pointing our attention to our accountability partners. These are the people we must constantly be supplying our fruits. These personalities constantly demand our fruits and we must never let them down.
Jesus represents those three personalities and we must always take that to heart.
The first person that demands fruits from us is God Himself. We have talked extensively on this and the earlier you settle this in your mind the better. God is called our Lord and Lordship connotes ownership.
Beloved, you don’t own yourself; all your gifts, skills and talents came from Him. He sent you and I on a mission to this planet and He EXPECTS A RETURN ON HIS INVESTMENT. Hear Him:
Matthew 21:43 “Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.”
John 15:16 “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and [that] your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”
The second personality that requires our fruits are the authority figures over our head. Jesus represents a spiritual leader/father , a pastor or prophet and also an employer. Lordship also means “One who employs another or engages another to carry out a task”, for example your boss at work.
How does your pastor feel with the way you’re handling assignments in church? Are you the gifted singer who comes to church when she feels like?
To be continued…
