Branches

The LORD called your name, “A green olive tree, beautiful in fruit and form”; With the noise of a great tumult He has kindled fire on it, And its branches are worthless. Jeremiah 11:16

You were dead in your sins, you were left with no hope but imminent death. However God called your name, he took you out of the grave, breathed life on your dry bones, and created a new and clean heart! However despite all of this, you keep backsliding, you keep forgetting about God and his grace and mercy

This is exactly what happened to Israel, God called them out of slavery. He delivered them to the Promise Land, he provided for them in the wilderness, he defeated their enemies when they were under attack. However Israel kept forgetting about God and worshipped pagan gods like Baal

What happened? The branches (believers) have become fruitless and dead. What does the Keeper (God) do to dead branches, he cuts them off and throws them into the fire

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

Jesus teaches about this, Jesus is the Vine and we are the branches. Those who don’t cling to the vine will wither and die. You cant be part of The Vine (Jesus Christ) if your attached to other idols. Cling to the Vine, cling to Jesus Christ! He will give you eternal life Amen!
