God revealed something as I sat waiting for my daughter to have her hair done.
Today is Fruitful Friday….
People will truly know us by the fruits we produce. Whether those fruits are good or bad.
What is fruit good for?? Most people will eat fruit… they consume what is produced from the tree.
As a Christian I have a new purpose in life. That is to produce good fruit for others to consume. (Eat) By my fruits they will know me…
The fruit of the Holy Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance (patience), kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Can others see this fruit in me?
There is good reason that the scriptures say, ” Taste and see that the Lord is good.”
We are able too get a taste of How Good God is by tasting the fruits or consuming the fruits produced by those who follow Him.
This is why it is so important to make sure those fruits are good.
What taste are we leaving in the mouths of others who watch our every move, our daily lives…
Do we leave a sweet taste that they can’t get enough of and come back for more?
Do we leave a salty taste that leaves them thirsty for more?
Do we leave them with a sour taste, where they don’t want to taste it except rarely. When they want that punch to kick start their mouths for a new taste.
Do we leave a weird taste where they have to get used to the difference before truly enjoying it. Some come to like it others decide after a while they don’t want to keep tasting the weird taste in fear of never coming to truly enjoy it.
Do we leave a rotten taste where they walk away and never want to taste or try it again…
I personally want to be the fruit that is sweet and salty… where those around me long for more, thirsting for the water that never runs dry.
I want every fruit produced of the Holy Spirit evident in my life. The closer I get to God the more my bad fruit is pruned and good fruit is produced from the Tree of Life…. come taste and see for He is Good.
