August: Our month of FRUITFULNESS. (Double Portion)
TOPIC: CHOSEN TO BEAR FRUIT! Part 3.
Read Mark 4:1-9.
When we have committed ourselves to Christ and live to please Him, the natural result is behavioral choices that look like His. It was clear that true followers of Christ will be noticeable by their fruit: “Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them”
There are many ways Christians can be fruitful. True fruitfulness begins in the heart with the fruit of the Spirit. That inner fruit affects outward actions; our words and our activities will glorify the Lord, and God’s will is accomplished. God’s desire is to transform us into the image of Christ and make us as fruitful as He was.
We desire to be the “good soil” Jesus spoke of in the Parable of the Sower. The result of spiritual fruitfulness is that God is glorified, we grow, and others come to know Christ—this is the ultimate fruitfulness for a child of God. Amen! Please stay tuned for the conclusion.
Prayer: I receive Grace and Favor to be a good soil in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
