How to Live Life to the Fullest

April 6

He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, and they will bring offerings in righteousness to the LORD. Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasing to the LORD as in the days of old and as in former years.           

Malachi 3:3-4

I was talking with an avid gardener one time, and he told me about the process of pruning fruit-bearing plants. He said, “Pruning fruit plants is so important because the unproductive growth of a plant will steal nutrients and choke out the productive growth. If you want good fruit, you have to prune away the bad branches.”

That’s a vivid picture of our spiritual lives. You see, every man or woman who truly loves God wants his or her life to bear good spiritual fruit. But all too often, there are things in our lives that hinder, and even choke out that fruit. So to prune our lives, God will very often send pain or hard times in order for those bad branches to be pruned away.

Some examples of this I’ve seen personally are men and women who fill their lives with the pursuit of success and neglect their spouses and families. So God allows struggles in their lives—a rebellious child, sickness, and even death—in order to prune away the insignificant goals in their lives and refocus them on what really matters.

So when you experience pain and hardships, be open to the idea that God is pruning you, simplifying your life, and refocusing you on what really matters!

THINK OF AREAS OF HARDSHIP IN YOUR LIFE AND ASK GOD IF HE’S PRUNING YOU SO THAT YOU MAY LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST!

About PowerPoint

PowerPoint Ministries is the radio and television broadcast ministry of Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church — a nearly 37,000-member church with three campuses in the Dallas and North Texas region. Through PowerPoint Ministries, Dr. Graham offers practical, biblical steps on how to tap into God's power for successful Christian living.

About Jack Graham

PowerPoint Ministries is the radio and television broadcast ministry of Dr. Jack Graham in Plano, Texas. Dr. Graham is the pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, one of the nation's largest, most dynamic congregations.

When Dr. Graham came to Prestonwood in 1989, the 8,000-member congregation responded enthusiastically to his straightforward message and powerful preaching style. He challenged the Prestonwood family with a vision for a larger outreach, and in 1999, the church moved from its North Dallas location to a new 7,500-seat auditorium in west Plano.

Thriving with more than 33,000 members, Prestonwood continues to grow with seven weekend worship services, four midweek services, about 300 Bible Fellowship classes for all ages, and multiple outreach and community ministries that reach thousands. In 2006, the church added a second location, the North Campus, in a burgeoning area 20 miles north of Plano. And in 2011, Prestonwood returned to its roots—beginning its third location, the Dallas Campus, about two from miles from its original location.

Dr. Graham has served two terms as president of the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest American Protestant denomination, with 16 million members and as president of the SBC Pastor’s Conference.

He is a noted author of numerous books, including You Can Make a Difference, Lessons from the Heart, A Hope and a Future, Life According to Jesus, Are you Fit for Life? and Powering Up. Courageous Parenting, co-authored by his wife, Deb, is based on their experiences as parents. Dr. Graham’s passionate, biblical teaching is also seen and heard across the country and throughout the world on PowerPoint Ministries. Through broadcasts, online sermons and e-mail messages, he addresses relevant, everyday issues that are prevalent in our culture and that strike a chord with audiences worldwide.

Dr. Graham was ordained to the Gospel ministry in 1970, and has a master of divinity degree with honors and a doctor of ministry degree in Church and Proclamation from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
