How does life growth happen? Is there a “formula” or a “plan” that one could follow to ensure a life of growth? I am talking about our character and spiritual/relational life growth and not necessarily our physical life. Jesus, in his parable of the fig tree, will explain to us that there is a process for healthy life growth to occur. The audio message that follows is the second part of my lesson at Bible Baptist Church. You can hear the first part Here: What Is God Up To?
For Today’s Message, please play the following audio:
And He began telling this parable: “A man had a fig tree which had been planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and did not find any. 7 “And he said to the vineyard-keeper, ‘Behold, for three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree without finding any. Cut it down! Why does it even use up the ground?’ 8 “And he answered and said to him, ‘Let it alone, sir, for this year too, until I dig around it and put in fertilizer; 9 and if it bears fruit next year, fine; but if not, cut it down.’ ”
Luke 13:6-9 (NASB95)
