Jesus said, “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be rooted up.” That leaves the final sorting of all people and things to the Father.
However, let’s not be foolish about being non-judgmental about who is in or out, who is right and who isn’t… who is saved and who is not saved. We cannot completely determine the “plants” the Father has planted and what will be rooted up. But we have plenty of teaching from Jesus and from the Letters in the New Testament to make clear determinations for ourselves concerning the requirements of the Father in becoming his plants.
In the Parable of the Vine, Jesus says, “Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.” This is one way to know if we are one of God’s plants. The apostle Paul writes, “For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building.” If we are God’s field we are God’s plants. What gets rooted up is Father’s business and what is more important is what does not get rooted up.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” Jesus
