Do you tells others about Jesus?

[Jesus said,] “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
John 15:5

We tend to think of pruning as painful, and while it may be at times, it’s also very refreshing to your soul. There’s something very liberating about making space for more of God in your life. With the priorities of your faith as your guide, you get back to basics, remembering how you want to spend your time and resources rather than allowing them to be consumed by everyone else’s demands.

Gardeners know that trees require pruning if they’re to remain healthy and grow straight. We’re the same way. We need to get rid of the possessions, relationships, and responsibilities that aren’t working, especially the ones that pull us away from God. As we “clean house” within our lives, we may discover new rooms where God is waiting to meet us.

You can grow closer to God with my full Jesus Daily® Devotional Book at fine bookstores everywhere.

Pray: “Lord, give me wisdom about the obstacles to my faith that I need to prune away so I can experience the new growth that comes from spending time with you.”
