Can God the Gardener Throw His Hat Through Your Tree?

"He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful." Jesus in John 15:2

Not all growth is good in and of itself, there is growth that hinders fruit bearing and imbalances the tree. 

For me the obvious one is knowledge. 

The fruit this gardener is looking for is the result of the Holy Spirit's activity in the life of the Christian. It is authentic when it is grounded in the truth of the Bible, born out of repentance, looks like Jesus (e.g.tastes goodgives life to those who eat it and is always there when people go looking.


If you want to meditate more on how God the gardener does his pruning, go here. This video is good too.
