They may be over 100 years old and they were almost destroyed. A elderly couple were selling a little house and the fig bushes were in the way so they were going to cut them down. I asked for them and they let me dig them up, man what a job. I took them home and replanted them and one started producing big tasty figs the first year. The other was slower so I fertilized it with barnyard manure and did it ever start producing. Those two big fig bushes remind me of something in the Bible. The word fruit is mentioned 57 times just in the New Testament and it refers to the type of life we live. We can have bad or good fruit in our lives depending on our relationship to Christ and the way we live. If we are Christians the Bible says there should be some evidence of it in our life, (Matthew 3:8). Our lifestyle will reveal who we really are, (Matthew 7:18-21, 12:33). We are to live to glorify God not ourselves, (Romans 7:4). We do not have it within ourselves to be Christ like so we must yield and abide, or draw from Him to yield that fruit, (John 15:1-5, Galatians 5:22-24). It pleases God very much and brings honor to His name when we live in a honorable Christian way, (John 15:8-11). See you in Church next Sunday.
