WE MUST BARE THE FRUIT
Brothers here James is teaching
us what God the Father is expecting from each of us. He is also showing us our
relationship to both Jesus and to God. God is the husbandman of the vineyard.
The grape vineyard belongs to God and He is the one who will watch over and
care for each vine.
Jesus is the vine that is rooted in the good soil and grows forth
reaching for the sky.
You and I, as children of God, are the branches that bares the fruit and holds on to it until
each bunch of grapes are mature and ready for harvest.
We are told to be patient
therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waits
for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until the
vineyard receives the early and later rain.
In verse eight above we are told
to be patient as God is patient. You and I are to establish our spiritual
hearts in God's Holy Word while we wait for Jesus' appearing. He says that the
coming of the Lord is very near.
Brothers, we must be in much
prayer for our brothers in Christ Jesus in this hour, and also for the lost
souls of this world, for the hour of His soon appearing to receive us unto
himself is very, very, close.
Brothers, we are not to hold
grudges against another brother lest we be condemned. Please see here how very
important it is for us to love our brothers in Christ Jesus. Our brothers is
everyone who accepts Jesus as the only way to eternal life in our heavenly
home. We are told plainly here in verse nine above how very important it is to
love our brothers in Christ and not to hold grudges against them.
statement says that we are to look and see that the judge is standing at the
door. All that is left is for him to open the door. Jesus' appearing is just
that close brothers. It is so much closer than we the Church, the body of
Christ, even knows. We must busy ourselves doing God's work today for there may
not be a tomorrow.
God bless you my brothers in
Christ Jesus. Be busy doing His work.
