Everyday Good Fruit
What kind of fruit do you like? I like bananas but only if they’re slightly green. In the Bible we can read about bearing good fruit in our lives, which is delicious and colorful, like the fruit of love, joy, peace and patience. But how is this fruit developed and how does true change in us happen? Fruit only grows quickly in time-lapse photography.
Truth needs cultivating and it actually starts with us knowing and playing “the CD of truth” in our minds until it becomes more prominent than the old negative CD we’re all born with. God loves you right where you’re at and not where you think you should be. You don’t have to earn God’s love. Play that repeatedly in your mind. Christ proved His love and acceptance ONCE on the cross by His death and resurrection. The power of His resurrection is the same power available to us through the Holy Spirit. Seriously! We can bear good fruit that’ll change us and those we come in contact with will see that change and be blessed by it…everyday.
