Jesus' words are teaching and healing. When He tells us the Parable of the Fig Tree, Jesus is giving us a Kingdom Principle to take to heart and remember. Jesus is giving this Parable to us so that we understand we are His fruit trees in the Kingdom of God and He is hungry for us to bear fruit. After we have experienced the New Birth and are filled with Holy Spirit, Spirit always prompts us to bear fruit for Jesus
At this prompting by Spirit, like the quicking when a child in the womb movies for the first time, you and I are strongly led to do something for Jesus to help someone else-- for example: fruit of a kindness and a prayer, fruit of a joyful donation of money when asked or you and I see the need, fruit as we gently forgive someone angered even before their anger quells, fruit to help a child experience the love of Jesus through your words and actions, or perhaps fruit by extending an extraordinary amount of loves' mercy to a spouse with dementia or alzheimer's or lewy-body dementia.
Actually the list of ways to bear fruit for Jesus Christ is too numerous to write here yet led by the power of Holy Spirit you will know what to do and Spirit will tell you what to say. Listen well to Spirit as Spirit is a soft gentle voice within you and you may always confirm Spirit's directives through New Testament Scriptures.
Recognize fruits within yourself through Galatians 5:22-23- love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Bearing these fruits to others through your actions and words are daily Spirit led Kingdom duties we stay alert to perform because that's what the New Birth causes us to do for Jesus. And before you go to sleep each night ask yourself, "What fruit did I bear for Jesus today?"
6 Then he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and found none. 7 So he said to the gardener, ‘See here! For three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree, and still I find none. Cut it down! Why should it be wasting the soil?’ 8 He replied, ‘Sir, let it alone for one more year, until I dig around it and put manure on it. 9 If it bears fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.’” Luke 13:6-9
