Bearing fruit?

Mark 11:12

Jesus was hungry.

Jesus was thirsty, Jesus wept and now Jesus was hungry. All things that we have done and do, but Jesus was the living water, Jesus raised a friend from the dead, and then Jesus withered a fig tree.

Jesus felt the same things we do, but yet He was The Word made flesh. The reason he did these things was to feel our humanity it wasn't for him. Again, it was for us.

Did you know that a fig tree is filled with moisture? It would takes months to dry up, but because Jesus cursed the fig tree that no one would eat from it again it withered up by the next morning. It was a symbol to show His power to others.

Once again, we like the fig tree are supposed to bear fruit. Are you bearing any fruit for the Kingdom?

Step out today. Ask someone if they know Jesus. Wear a t-shirt that proclaims your love for Christ. Perform a random act of Kindness for someone. Bear fruit for the Kingdom!

Sweet Blessings,

Debbie, I always thought that was a strange thing for Jesus do, to curse the fig tree. Maybe like you said it was to show His power to the disciples and others that were present.

I noticed those three words, "Jesus was hungry" also. Haven't really picked up on those before. It does remind us that He was like us.

Thanks for the reminder to bear fruit today!
