Text: And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it…And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away. (Mark 11:12-14,20-21)

Tweet: The curse of barrenness is the consequence of the sin of barrenness. To escape it requires more than foliage; it requires fruitfulness. To escape Christ’s curse and to ensure ourselves of His blessing requires more than buds and blossoms.
