Cultivate - Periodic Pruning

Many of us meticulously cultivate our lawns and gardens. Successful gardeners, those proverbial “green thumbs,” discover that periodic pruning is indispensable for a healthy, vibrant garden.

This pruning process is hard work and initially distracts from the beauty of the garden. Done right however, the results can be a glory to behold.

Spiritual pruning is similar and is indispensable for a vibrant and vital spiritual life. In this message we will take an up-close look at the spiritual pruning techniques that the Master Gardener uses to help His children grow spiritually.

What Bill Gates Knows about Fertilizer

The “green thumb” of a great, glowing, and growing garden can often be attributed to the wise application of fertilizer. Bill Gates, who commissioned research on the worldwide use of fertilizer in agriculture, states rather boldly that 2 out of every 5 people on earth today owe their lives to higher crop outputs that fertilizer has made possible. Fertilizer is important for our world today.

Spiritual fertilizer is of even greater importance, having eternal consequences. 100% of followers of Christ owe their spiritual development to proper spiritual fertilization. Without it believers will “wither on the vine.”

In this message will examine the composition of spiritual fertilizer. We will also study who does the fertilizing, and when and where it is done. Join us this Sunday as we examine the fertilization of the spiritual man.

The Condition of Our Spiritual Garden

How am I doing spiritually? This is perhaps one of the most important questions a person can consider.

King David reflected on this question and he knew that can be a difficult one to answer. In fact, in Psalm 139:23-24 he prays, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.

King David wanted to make sure that he was on good terms with God. So should we. This week we will conclude our “Cultivate” series as we consider how to evaluate the condition of our spiritual garden.
