Topic: Fruit (10/10/05)

TITLE: Separation From Christ

Silence is fruitful, like the calm autumn days when the year's work is done, and the earth rests for next spring's banquet of fruit and next summer's promise and fertility but separation is withering. Did you ever see a cherry bough that children bring home from the woods, and stick in a vase or in the grate near on open fire; how in a couple of days or more the little fresh leaves all shrivel up and the white or pink blossoms become brown and smell foul, and the only thing to be done with it is to throw it into the fire or the outside wheelie-bin to get rid of it?

Jesus Christ of Nazareth said,"As long as a man holds onto Me and the sap comes into him, he will flourish, and as soon as the connection is broken, all that was green and fertile will get brown and turn to dust, and all that was beautiful blossom will droop, and there will be no more fruit any more forever!" (italics mine). Separation from Christ Jesus, and unfortunately the individual shrivels, and the possibilities of green fair buds die withering and do not set into fruit. And, no man is the man he might have been unless he holds onto the 'True Vine' - Jesus Christ and lets His life come into him.

Nice thoughts- I had a little trouble pulling them all out. Maybe work for shorter sentences- to give it more punch. I liked the descriptions.

I agree with others. Very powerful message but needs shorter sentences.

Good choice of a vital scriptural theme to share with your readers.

I loved the detail and descriptiveness of your article. Run on sentences could be shortened, still blending well with the beautiful clarity that you have nicely presented. It is a wonderful truth. God bless ya, littlelight

Good thoughts; the sentences had great descriptions. I think in the tightness of these submissions, the longer sentences bother some, but I found them workable, not at all Faulkner style. Thank you for submitting.
