2 Father cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. 3 You are already pruned by the word I have spoken to you. John 15:2–3 (DLT)
We have been pruned because we have produced fruit.
What is the point.
The point is that we are in Christ Jesus, we produce fruit, and Father knows how to get more out of us. Not surprisingly it is God Word that has already pruned us.
Now that is union.
Father is pruning Jesus by His word. We in Him are pruned. What Father is doing with His Son is what He has done in us.
