Lessons from the Fig
Who needs my fruits-2
Mark 11:14 “And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.”
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?
You’re that employee who shows up at work briefly and has more sick leave applications in his or her file than letters of commendation. You seems to have become an expert at “dodging” tasks, yet you claim to be born again
Beloved, we are pacesetters and we must give our best to every task committed into our hands. Hear this:
1 Corinthians 4:2 “Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.”
The word ‘required’ means compulsory or requisite. It means it is unbendable and indispensable; having no choice but to be faithful. Never use “religion” to deceive and do haphazard jobs for your boss. God requires faithfulness from you and also expect you to give same to your leaders.
The third category that needs our fruits are “other men or people”. Jesus told this tree, “…No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever…” (Mark 11:14).
Apart from God and our leaders, we are also required to give our fruits to other people we come across.
Matthew 5:16 “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
Friend, men must see our fruits and give glory to God. If your life ain’t doing this, it is not giving God glory.
This tree disappointed God, it’s leader and other people and received a pronouncement of judgement.
Beloved, if men can’t see your good and excellent works, your Christianity is suspect. The quality of your work should drive people to Christ. Don’t be the lazy man or woman that is making men mock the church and our God.
Set good examples, we are difference makers. Enough of laziness from the so called “brethren”.
