Oh how I love the taste of fresh fruit. The vibrant colors, the sweetness and crunch of some of the fruit. Fruit can look attractive, drawing us by the way it is presented; that is the color, size, shape, firmness or softness and the taste. How we may bite into the fruit and our taste buds long for more of that fruit. Sometimest we will find fruit that is attractive on the outside, but once we bite or cut into the fruit we may find a worm, an area that is dying or has become rotten. How disappointing that may be.
John talks to us about the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22 "love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control. Against there is no law." This fruit never goes rotten, in fact it continues to draw men closer to Jesus. If we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, and we walk in obedience, the fruit of the Spirit is evident within us for all to see. It is when we are disobedient that the fruit no longer looks like the fruit of the Spirit, it looks like rotten fruit coming from the heart. Jesus is the vine and we are the branches, stay connected to the vine, the fruit grows and becomes strong. What a joy it is to see someone walking in love, joy, peace and the remaining fruit. How can we stay connected to the vine, read your bible, pray, live in the spirit and watch your fruit grow for you to share with others.
