Main point summary
While the initial withering of the fig tree taught about the topic of fruit in the Christian life, Mark’s second mention of the fig tree teaches us that Jesus’ followers must ‘Have Faith in God’. This faith leads us to 1) ask with full belief in our prayers, which leads to God doing what we ask and 2) to forgive those who have wronged us, which leads to God choosing to forgive us.
