O.k., now that you have that tune stuck in your head I’ll tell you it has nothing to do with the old song, sorry.
Bro. Wayne Rhodes shared something with me very interesting and I felt led to share it with all of you…
As I was reading your post ” Herein is God Glorified” these scriptures came to me. Your post is about bearing fruit. As you know, Israel is compared to the vine tree many times in scripture. Here in the 15th chapter of Ezekiel, God uses the grape vine to illustrate the point of bearing fruit, or not.
This chapter illustrates my own experience with grape vines. The wood of a grape vine is very unusal compared to other woody plants in that the wood of a grape vine is very weak and brittle, you can’t use the wood for anything that requires strength, or to do work like build anything with it. The only practical use I have seen for grape vines is to make decorations, like wreaths, with it. So what good is the the grape vine anyway? Answer: It bears dellicious fruit that is also very healthy for us, if it does not bear fruit, it is pretty much useless!
Amen, Bro. Wayne. May we strive to bear fruit for Jesus today!
