Dr. Bruce Northam - Senior Pastor
Jesus’ earthly existence was the embodiment of productivity. He healed the sick, raised the dead, opened blind eyes, enabled the lame to walk, comforted children, cleansed lepers, taught, preached, shredded the veil that separated dust from divinity, and split history into BC and AD. On the cross, despite being hung with His flesh ripped off, having iron spikes in His hands and feet, He still, made provision for His mother, made provision for a repentant criminal, had intercessory prayer for His enemies, and deposited His spirit into the hands of His father. He also had the ability to work food miracles. He turned water into wine. He multiplied bread and fish. He put fish into the nets of fishermen. So why, if He was hungry, did He not simply whip up a snack from the leaves of a barren fig tree? Why did He condemn it? It was alive, but not productive!
