The Master Pruner

The Master Pruner

By David Smith July 3, 2010

Scripture text

Matthew 7: 18, 19, 20 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit: but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Hebrews 4: 12 For the word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

As God wants to mould me and shape me to mend

Closer to Jesus by His Word he did sent.

He gave a wife to hit heads with all day

To realize the Value, the power to pray

With painful jabs, God’s Holy Word

Piercing the heart so wicked and reserved

To point out the stubbornness to let in the light

The joy of a Christian with a restless night

The master pruner, with knife in his hand

A two edged sword on God’s word that I stand

Far from the truth and out in left field

By faith alone; to God’s way that I yield

And every day; change appears so slow

Through cutting and whittling, the Pruner to know;

He is the surgeon to bring me closer to the Cross

Sacrificed His Begotten Son; that I might not be lost.

O what joy as I hurt in his hand;

As he guides me and prunes me; for His Promised Land.
