Let’s Be Fruity for God!

Bear Good Fruit and Much Fruit

There’s no better stuff than the fruit of the . Let’s go out on a spiritual limb where the fruit of the is so we can be fruity for !

“But the Is Love, Joy, Peace, Long-Suffering Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-Control . . .” — Galatians 5:22-23

“Most Christians, after accepting Jesus Christ, spend a lot of effort trying to behave according to what is portrayed in the Bible. They focus on overcoming their sins and failures, and they do their best to be holy in order to have a ‘good’ testimony. Though these efforts seem admirable, they can become a distraction from doing the things that will actually help them grow spiritually. And if they are not growing, then trying to live the Christian life becomes a very frustrating endeavour.” – ONE: Unfolding God’s Eternal Purpose From House To House” by Henry Hon.

Fruitlessness Is a Sign That Our Hearts Are Not Right with God.  

“Consider the fruit of the Spirit, that is what the Christian life should be. Fruit is just the product of life and growth, not self-effort and work. If believers will focus on the four essentials for life and growth then the outcome, fruit, includes all the things that make a believer become a duplicate of Jesus Christ. A believer with the fruit of the Spirit, is certainly one with all believers in the body, and a joy for all people to be around.” – ONE: Unfolding God’s Eternal Purpose From House To House” by Henry Hon.

We are saved by grace alone but we are people who are saved to bear fruit which comes from being connected to the vine (John 15:4).

So, the question is, are you a fruity Christian?

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
