  1. Time with God, consistent, quality time with Him, to become in tune with His will and His ways…that’s where our abundant life starts and stays. Thank you, Dee…excellent reminder!

    • Thank you so much…indeed, we are to recognize each other by the fruits, and not the pretty leaves. The fig trees in Palestine bear fruit first, and then the leaves, and so indeed the fig tree that Jesus cursed was false advertisement, because although it had leaves, it bore no fruit… Blessings to you!

  2. If the root dies there can be no fruit.
    Our roots MUST be firmly planted in THE TRUTH, in the Word of God, and all our sustenance drawn from there. THEN there WILL be fruit – abundant fruit.

    We serve an amazing God!

    • Absolutely true… our roots must be firmly planted on the truth of God’s Word… Yes, we serve an amazing God Who gives us the sustenance through His Word to grow and develop, and enable us to bear fruit. Thank you for your insightful comments, and blessings to you!

  3. Very thought-provoking… it reminded of a Quaker statement ” that he who is a stranger to prayer…finds to his unspeakable loss, that a life without prayer is a life practically without God “

    • Thank you, Valerie. I am glad you found this post thought-provoking. And thank you for sharing that beautiful Quaker statement. So wonderfully and truthfully stated: truly, a life without prayer is practically a life without God.

  4. A. W. Tozer’s works are outstanding. I possess some of his material. And I certainly enjoy reading this piece. It’s a confirmation to me that Father God desires that I become more close and intimate with Him. Thank you for sharing. Praise the Lord!

    • Thank you so much. A. W. Tozer’s works have made their imprint upon me, too. Praise God for your visit to my blog! I am blessed, and will certainly be visiting and be even more blessed when I read and learn from your posts. God bless you!
