Faith-Filled Fruit

Numbers 34-36; Mark 11

“The next day as they were leaving Bethany [house of figs], Jesus was hungry. Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. Then he said to the tree, ‘May no one ever eat fruit from you again.’…On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple…‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.’” Mark 11:12-15, 17

Fig trees display their fruit each spring before they display their leaves. The fig tree Jesus cursed had no promise of fruit because of its health or nature, not because of the season. The temple was to express prayer as the faith-filled expectation of future fruit for all nations. This essential faith-filled prayer function was being replaced by the lucrative buying and selling of sacrificial animals as local merchants profited from this sacrifice required by God.
Is there a faith-filled prayer for the nations in the center of our lives and ministries?
It’s the kind of fruit Jesus is expecting.

“Lord Jesus, fill my life with faith-filled expectant prayers for the nations and your glory.”

“Praise God that we have been welcomed by the local church and God has provided a place for us to serve in this community. Please pray for continued favor in language learning and boldness to speak out. Pray also for unity and grace among our team and church family as we navigate challenges with implementing new programs. Pray for God to gift us with non-Christian friends with whom we can boldly share the Gospel.”
