Daily Devotion

6 October 

Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. (John 15:2, ESV)

In every vineyard, a vinedresser prunes the branches so they will produce more fruit. God does the same spiritually. He employs different methods in His pruning: the rejecting gesture, the unkind word, or no word at all, living in constant noise and confusion with daily duties challenging us to find time for quiet time with Him. The loving hands of the Master Vinedresser knows what we can take and He knows what we can become. We must not shrink from the knife but trust the hands that hold it.

Prayer: Lord, some times it hurts, but I know it’s for your glory.
