结果子的枝子 [Branch that Bear Fruit]

书卷:约翰福音(新约)
作者:使徒约翰

约翰福音15章2节:“凡属我不结果子的枝子,祂就剪去;凡结果子的,祂就修理干净,使枝子结果子更多。”

今日默想:在同一棵葡萄树上,有结果子的枝子和不结果子的枝子。结不结果子,全在乎是什么样的枝子。我们要作怎么样的基督徒,主让我们有很大的选择决定权。修理不只包括洗净,更包括剪除。所以我们不仅须要好好的除净一切的罪污,更得好好的接受对付,去掉身上一切不该有的东西,使我们不能结果子,或不能结更多果子的东西。枝子须被修理干净,才能多结果子。基督徒必须付出痛苦的代价,才能成为主有用的器皿,为主作见证。一直接受主的修理对付,才能一直带领人蒙恩得救。如果主不使修剪的刀临到我们,而让我们自由的生长,我们就要失去基督徒生命该有的特质。如果我们离开主,照着自己的方式任意而活,我们就会失去基督徒生命的特色。结果子是葡萄树生命最高的流露,也是最能使栽培的人得到满足的。能结果子的枝子虽然好,但仍不够好,必须多而又多。结果子更多,乃是我们每位信徒该有的目标。

Book: John (New Testament)
Author: Apostle John

John 15:2 :“Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.”

Today’s Meditation: There are branches that bear fruit and do not bear fruit on a grape tree. It is up to the branch whether to bear fruit or not. The Lord gives us the right to choose which type of Christian we want to be. Pruning includes both cleaning and removal. We need to cleanse our sins and remove negative things that we should not have in us, for both these hinder us from bearing fruit. Branches must be trimmed to bear fruit. Christians must pay great efforts to be the vessel for the Lord and witness for Him. We can lead more people to the Lord as we accept His pruning all the time. We will lose the traits of Christian if we do not let the Lord prune us. We will lose our nature of Christianity if we choose to live in our way. Bearing fruit is the highest revelation of the life of grape tree. It can brings satisfaction to the planter. It is necessary to bear more fruit as a branch. Bearing more fruit is the mutual target we all should have.
