It says in the Bible that we will know unbelievers from born-again Christians by their fruits. Did you know your fruits shows, who you serve. Everyone will know the real you.
I guess the title of this article, was a surprise to you? But it is a true biblical statement. Let me explain;
(1.) The fruits of Born Again believers are.
We read in (Galatians 5:22,23) These are the fruits that we will see in the life of every true Born Again Christians any where on earth.
22. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23. Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
It says that we will know true Born Again Christians by these fruits in their life.
(2.) The fruits of the lost or unbelievers.
We also read in (Galatians 5:19-21) We see what the fruits of the ones who live in the flesh who are not saved will be.
19. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20. Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21. Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
All of us who are born-again Christians should receive the power of the Holy Spirit. If we want to be an effective witness for Jesus Christ. Jesus told his disciples to wait and do nothing until the power of the Holy Spirit came upon them from above. Then they will be witnesses of the Gospel.
So we also need the power from above to produce the fruits of the Spirit in our lives. We can not do it without the help of the Holy Spirit. Ask God in prayer to produce the fruits of the Holy Spirit in your life. And He will. We receive it by faith.
We must all pray for God to fill us with His Holy Spirit so that we can be effective witnesses to change lives for Jesus Christ. We can not achieve this by our own will. It does not work that way. It must be done through the power of the Holy Spirit.
We must let the Holy Spirit to produce the fruits of the Spirit in our lives.
In (John 15:8) says that God is glorified, that ye bear much fruit. If you really want to glorify God and if you really want to be known as a disciples of Jesus Christ. You must bear the fruits of the Holy Spirit. As we read in (Galatians 5:22,23)
In (Luke 6:44) says that every tree is known by its fruits.
When I read these verses above I pray that God lets the Holy Spirit produce the fruits of the Holy Spirit, through my life. So I can praise God correctly in my life.
The verses above is a way for us to measure if we are walking as a true believer in Christ Jesus or if we are walking as a lukewarm believer. God says that there is no middle ground when it comes to going to heaven or hell. We are either lost or saved. Period!
We all must be very prayerful, at all times and watch the gage (Galatians 5:22,23) to make sure we are producing the fruits of the Holy Spirit in and through your life. Because once we die, it is too late to try to get it right again. We only have one chance in this life to get it right. And God tells us how to do it in the Bible. Therefore, we must read the Bible and pray daily.
The first fruit that the Holy Spirit will produce in our life is the fruit of love. This kind of love is from the throne of God Himself. It is so powerful that you can love and forgive everyone. The kind of love that you will be able to forgive your enemies. The love of God, which he creates through us. A pure and Holy love from God that you feel so loved and to love like you never been able to love before.
A love, that reaches out for the lost people for Jesus Christ. And the love that is compassionate to help the poor who are starving and living in poverty around the world.
In America we have so much food and entertainment, it is easy for us to forget those who are poor and hungry all over the world.
I would like to share this with you. I am being convicted by the Holy Spirit to reach out to people in the world who are poor and needy and homeless. I feel convicted and led by the Holy Spirit to do my part for Jesus Christ.
Please pray for me as I step out in faith and began this journey. It's your prayers that have encouraged me to continue my calling with boldness and I would like to tell everyone of you who have become my prayer partners all over the world. May God richly bless you and your family. You all mean a lot to me.
Jesus Loves You
