#FeelingDetermined, Being a Light, Growing in Christ

And Standing At the Root of the Tree

And standing at the root of the tree was an axe, ready to cut down every part of vegetation that need not be there. I had let so many things grow that needed to go!


-And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire (Matthew 3:10).

It is important to always be ready to purge/ be purged. being ok with loosing parts of ‘you’ is difficult but imperative in order to be more like Christ.

– Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; (I Peter 2:11).

– Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him (I John 2:15).

– And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God (Romans 12:2).

And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell (Matthew 5:29).

All in all, it’ll be worth it, because we are intentionally remembering that doing so will push us closer to who God has purposed us to be. 🙂
