Do you bare Good fruit or Bad?

 

Do you bare Good fruit or Bad?

John 15

15 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes[a] so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. 17 This is my command: Love each other.

My thoughts- When reading this I reflected on when I was lost and living in the world.  Going threw life never understanding why my life seemed to just go in circles hitting dead ends at every turn I made.  I was a branch dieing within my own self because of serving my own self.  When you make a choice to live in the world  based on your own thinking condoning or making excuses for your actions you will continue to go in circles hitting dead end after dead end and as a tree that is not nurtured, loved, cared for you will slowly wither away. When you turn to Christ and understand stand that not of your thinking but his and being obedient to the word of God that those dead ends will become new open roads and your branches will start to flourish and become filled with fruit.

Non of us can truly be happy, blessed nor love others until we first learn to stop living our life like a tree full bad fruit that is dieing and going no place.  Christ loves us and he paid the ultimate price for our sins. But does not excuse us from intentionally sinning when we know better.  Wouldn’t it be better to lean on Christ and our God so that we can bare good fruit and know what it really means to love one another instead of living in the world baring bad fruit day after day?
