"Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit.” -John 15:2
Religion is doing with the hope it will lead to spiritual being. Life in Christ is being that leads to doing. Religion is “do’s” and “don’ts,” but life in Christ is being attached to Him, like a branch to a tree. As long as the branch is linked to the tree, fruit “happens.” Branches don’t do self-pruning. The “husbandman”—the farmer—does the hacking. Our mission is to abide in Christ. When there’s something in us not bearing fruit, God will reveal it as we pray and study His Word. Then we submit to His pruning through repentance, and He lops off the fruitless twig.
