Are we bearing fruit for jesus???
 
I remember the incident in the Gospel where the Lord of the vineyard came and inspected on of the trees in the vineyard and saw that it has not produced any fruit; the Master/Lord was angry :foottap and instructed the caretaker of the vineyard to cut/hew down the tree for it is good for nothing, and cast it into the fire.

The Lord of the vineyard was disappointed :( because the tree was unproductive, and did not bear fruit, but the caretaker interceeded for the tree and asked the Master/Lord for another season to work-dung around the tree that it might bear fruit. How often does the Pastor/Leadership of the tree {the church} pray, teach, preach, admonish God's people, and even reprove/rebuke the people of God for being nonproductive with producing fruit {witnessing and winning souls} for the Kingdom of God???

Do we ever take the time to reflect back {ponder} :hmmm to see what have we produced for the Kingdsom of God in regards to winning souls??? How many people are; were saved in the year 2012 from our efforts??? How many people are we working with diligently right NOW for the Kingdom of God??? How many souls have been saved over the duration of our saved walk with the Lord, or is this not a PRIORITY in our lives-IT IS WITH JESUS.

Wow; this is what Jesus died for??? Jokes about such a serious matter-no wonder Jesus said few that be that find therein; this narrow way; for the wayfarring man-wow. I'm so glad the Jesus sent a very saved and serious man my way back in 1982; his life and witness was superb, and becuase of that I've been able to win over 200+and still reaching for more. I'll be entering into my closet soon with so MUCH, and so MANY to interceed for;especially these people Lord that have NO real/genuine effective witness for soul-too carnal and foolish....

No, this is not what Jesus died for.

And yes, this is exactly why Jesus said few will find the way.

Along with leaving childish things behind.

and speaking as fools speak.




Oh I'm sorry, did you expect some kind of meaningful response instead of what you got?


Yeah, let me know how that works for you.

You're right on target for those that are religiously lost, and not really about the Kingdom call of Jesus. I told my wife about this site, and it has the same type of foolishness; actually more-especially being called an Apostolic Friends???? Forum???? Many of you people {there's a few genuine people discernable} are far from what I was looking for in/with wholesome dialogue-this is NOT for me....

Sorry to hear that. You are welcome to post and hopefully become a friend.
