Jesus: The foundation of Christianity, His life and teachings. Illuminating our faith, hope, and love.

Barrenness or Fruitfulness Today,

Today, as I shared the verses on social media, one of them stood out. It is Mark 11:13:
This article is about the fruits of our faith. If Jesus came to us, would he find delicious fruits among our leaves, or just empty appearances? Based on the parable of the sower, we examine where our seed has fallen and how we can become good soil for fruit production. God gives the grace for growth, but the service of the shepherds and our obedience are also necessary. Let us not worry about our needs, for God takes care of us. We are known by our fruits, let us strive for the fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and temperance.

The writing provides a brief summary of Jesus' statement about faith recorded in Mark 4:40: "And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?" Jesus' question about faith may seem simple but carries deeper meaning. The Scriptures differentiate between various types of faith, such as little faith and the measure of faith. The writing emphasizes that our faith determines our limitations and that faith must be accompanied by deeds because faith without works is dead.
