The Tree = Man (Psalms 1 – “…like a tree planted by the waters…)

The Fruit = Just as we would expect fruit from our tree, God expects fruit from His!!

o Not only expects, but demands

o God as the husbandman has done His very best for the tree…

o Leaves and fruit both take energy from the tree…but only fruit adds back to the tree

o Many of us have leaves in our lives that are sapping our

strength so as to keep us barren.

o The leaves of sin, bad habits, worldliness, laziness, and unconcern are among a few.

o The unsaved have no fruit of repentance because of the leaves of sin.

The Lord is digging around many today, giving one more season for fruitfulness (Mercy)

o Around many lost souls

o Around many Christians

o Around many preachers

o Around many churches

1. Adam and Eve in the garden – “Where art thou”

2. Cain – “Where is Abel thy brother”

3. Jonah –“The word of the Lord came unto Jonah the second time…”

4. Seven Churches of Asia – “Left first love”…”A name that thou livest and art dead”… “You are lukewarm”

Matt 10:28 – “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
