Rev. Ayub Chhinchani preached from Mark 11:12-14 on occasion of Passion Week (Monday) Worship. His theme was ‘What God desires of us?’ There are two things we see here: God’s Love and mercy and His anger/rudeness.
We see the hypocrisy of this tree as it attracted people, but had no fruit in it. If we have no fruit in our Christian walk, then we are not matured enough. Remember, fruit is the only evidence of a transformed life in Christ.
The Lord is looking for fruit in the lives of His people. The Lord is looking for fruit in His church. When He examines us, does He find what He seeks? Or, does He see all leaf and no fruit? Time to ponder.
