God takes us through processes of growth. He is the One who prunes. Pruning means purifying, and the vine cannot be healthy without pruning. As Christians, we cannot escape pruning. Scripture teaches that we are made in the image of God; therefore, God has to cut away everything that is not of Him so that He might reveal His image in us. God wants us to bear fruit in the context we are in, so we should allow Him to prune us so that we may bear fruit in abundance.
