The very last chance

Read Luke 13:6-9
6 And he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none.
7 And he said to the vinedresser, ‘Look, for three years now I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I find none. Cut it down. Why should it use up the ground?’
8 And he answered him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and put on manure.
9 Then if it should bear fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.’”

MEMORIZE: For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: (Ecclesiastes 3v1).

The owner of the field in today’s text was disappointed with the unproductive fig tree, because he and his gardner had done the necessary on it to produce bountifully. The purpose of his investment on the tree had been defeated. Many today are sources of disappointment to their parents, leaders, and most sadly, God. All investments on them over the years have yielded no result.
The inefficiency of a man wouldn’t be allowed forever. Both man and God would not tolerate endlessly, despite the mercifulness and longsuffering of God. Always remember that the space/office God has given you to occupy is important to Him, and wouldn’t allow it to waste. Of course, there are others who are equally, or even more qualified. You aren’t the only useful one. Prophet Elijah thought he was the only faithful last man standing on God’s side. God cut him short to tell him that He had 7,000 reserved (1 Kgs.19v18). Never think that you are indispensable. If you think you have accomplished very bogus feats, so difficult for others to achieve, you will be surprised to see how God would raise others, more effective within the shortest period. Eschew pride lest you be changed. God won’t allow you to continue to waste His precious resources and investments in you. Even man wouldn’t allow his hard-earned resources to be wasted; stop the insolence!
The productiveness of Jeroboam, Solomon’s servant, was the reason why God gave him ten out of twelve tribes of Israel (1 Kings 11v28-37). This is an indication that God is keen on our duties and services. The man with one talent would have had it forever if not that he refused to trade with it. Do not let God replace you. He is giving you another privilege to be productive in that which He commit into your hands.

1. Call upon God to have mercy on you, wherever you have missed His purpose, and put you back on track.
2. Pray that God will help you, henceforth, not to waste His precious resources.
3. Pray that the messages/sermons in our churches will be empowered as good seed, falling on fertile grounds in the heart of every listener.
