God, the master gardener, whose ultimate goal is to produce a great harvest in and through each and every person. There is a harvest of spiritual fruit that can be developed in the life of the believer. There is also a harvest of souls that will be a result of God’s work in the individual.
Trouble in the Text: Jesus judges Israel’s leaders for being unfaithful & unfruitful. Another parable condemning the conduct of the Chief Priests and Pharisees in Jesus’ time.

If Jesus came by today looking for the fruit that we as a church should be bearing what would he find? What would he find if he looked to you for fruit?
