BY Apostle Naomi Aderonke Egah APOSTLE of FAVOR. The QUEEN & LIONESS of GOD’S GRACE. A PRODUCT OF GOD’S MERCY.
August: Our month of FRUITFULNESS. (Double Portion)
TOPIC: CHOSEN TO BEAR FRUIT!
Scripture adds; “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light”.
1 Peter 2:9
Jesus said; “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire”. Matthew 7:19
The Greek word translated “fruit” refers to the natural product of a living thing. Paul used “fruit” to help us understand the product of the Holy Spirit, who lives inside every believer. The fruit of the Spirit is produced by the Spirit of God. The Greek word is singular, showing that “fruit” is a unified whole, not independent characteristic. As we grow, all the characteristics of Christ will be manifested in our lives.
The Apostle Paul uses nine characteristics to describe the fruit of the Spirit in the book of Galatians.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”(Galatians 5:22-23)
Prayer: Oh God, help me to bear FRUIT in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
