Are You In Need of Pruning?

One way of ending self-deception is to step back and look at what fruit has flowed from the manner in which you have lived your life. If there is little or no good fruit evident, you are not likely a good tree. In such a case, turn to the premier Pruner, your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Allow Him to prune you of your self-centeredness and bad fruit (sin). Let Him fertilize your soul and heart with His unending fountain of graces. He is the only one Who can transform a bad tree into a good one. He is the only One who can transform us sinners into saints.
