Samech # 15
John 15 verse 1 says,
" I AM the true vine and my father is the keeper of the vineyard."
The fifteenth symbol letter Sawmeck is a wooden support for plants to grow up on. Plants and people need a strong support to help them grow. God is our strong support. His words in the Bible will help our minds grow strong in His ways. Gods ways are the best ways for us. They support us in making good choices. Good choices are God's choices. They teach us the difference between good and evil. Good is God's way. Evil is our own way or any other way that goes against God's way. Jesus said, " I am the vine and you are the branches." The vine is the part of the plant that supports it and brings food and water to it. The food and water gives the plant strength to grow fruit.
The fruits God wants us to grow are spiritual character fruits.
The Bible tells us this in the book of Galatians chapter 5 verse 22.
It says," the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faith... These are our choices. They are the desires in our hearts. We choose to be good or evil. God the father is our vine dresser. Jesus the son is the vine. Jesus supports us. we are the branches. God prunes us to make us produce good fruit. Pruning means He cuts off (circumcises) desires in our hearts for things that are not in His will for us. We learn this in John 15 verse 2 it says about the father the vine dresser. He cuts off every branch in Me that doesn't bear fruit. Every branch that does bear fruit He prunes so that it bears even more fruit.
