Our fruit

Our fruit

Our Bible study teacher yesterday taught on the fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5:22,23 which say  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,kindness,goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.  I remember too a discussion I had with a dear brother in the Lord long time ago about the difference between our fruit and the fruit of the Spirit. Could it be possible that we produce two kinds of fruit?From Matthew 7:15-20 we are warned about false prophets and that we will know them by their fruit. We then think of false prophets as others but it could also be us if we are not careful. Let me prove this point.

In John 15:1-8 The verses talks about abiding in Christ, and that we should remain in Him. That if we separate ourselves from Christ then we can not produce good fruit or no fruit at all.

Our life in Christ is a conscious decision, it is not automatic. We need to acknowledge Him daily. I find that when I neglect prayer and do things that does not please God that the fruit is sour but when  I acknowledge Him then the fruit is sweet.

Unfortunately Brother, we do bear two kinds of fruit until we have overcome by His Spirit all of the lusts and all of the pride still in us after receiving Him:

"Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be." James 3:10

One moment you are praising God and perhaps a half an hour later you are cursing the man who cut you off in traffic. Remember that cursing occurs many time without what the world calls cussing. It is not the words as much as it is the attitude that make a curse.

I have always thought the fruit we produce was the knowledge that we are able to feed our Lords children. Each little nugget of knowledge that we are feed through the Holy Spirit turns to fruit for others who we reach out to. As a matter of fact i feel like i have received lots of little nuggets from both of you.

 

Praise God,

bubba
