Dead Leaves

Have you ever seen dead leaves among dead trees? They do not fall off.

The wind blows harder and harder, but yet, they stick to the branches….

Few months ago we had this tree being knocked down during a storm, and the leaves never bother to come down dancing on the field like the other maple leaves do even now. Yes, interesting enough, the wind can knock down the tree but not the dead leaves on a dead tree.

I always thought the leaves fall because they are dead and dried. Certainly, I was wrong.

Awhile ago our pastor shared with us the fact that the leaves fall only because there’s life within a tree to push them off. Therefore, for us, just make sure there’s LIFE within us, so then our unwanted ugly dirty sinful nature will be pushed off one by one without us ever thinking about how to get rid of them, as He will prepare us to bear fruits!


John 15:4-5 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
