The Fig Tree
Bible Text: Genesis 3:7; Mark 11:12-21; Luke 13:7-9; John 8:15; 15:1-8 | Preacher: Elder Silke | The leaves of the fig tree (= ‘excuses’ in Hebrew) are a parable of spiritual deadness and its fruit, of spiritual life. Excuses cannot cover up our sins. What keeps you from producing fruit? Let the Holy Spirit be your fertilizer and let God prune you so that you produce much fruit.
