Back Porch Devotional : Pruning
May 26, 2020
Is Jesus using this unique season in our lives to do some pruning?
After all, Jesus said “every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit” (John 15:2) . . . and the Apostle Paul reminds us that “we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28). All means all . . . even a pandemic.
Much has been cut off in this season. Does what remain show the love of Jesus, the peace of Jesus, and the joy of Jesus . . . to a world that’s so hungry for those gifts?
