Ezekiel 15:1-7  The LORD spoke to me. "Mortal man," he said, "how does a vine compare with a tree? What good is a branch of a grapevine compared with the trees of the forest? Can you use it to make anything? Can you even make a peg out of it to hang things on? It is only good for building a fire. And when the ends are burned up and the middle is charred, can you make anything out of it? It was useless even before it was burned. Now that the fire has burned it and charred it, it is even more useless." Now this is what the Sovereign LORD is saying: "Just as a vine is taken from the forest and burned, so I will take the people who live in Jerusalem and will punish them. They have escaped one fire, but now fire will burn them up. When I punish them, you will know that I am the LORD. (GNB)

This message from God to Ezekiel provided clear evidence that He was going to destroy Jerusalem.  This message was about a vine, useless at first and even more useless after being burned.  The people of Jerusalem were useless to God because of their idol worship, and so they would be destroyed.  

How much time do you spent meditating on His Word? How much time do you spent in prayer? Are you always looking for excuses to work for God?  Are you always too busy to get involved in any fellowship activities at your church?  Have you become unfruitful to God?  How can you begin fulfilling His plan for you?
