Recently in a Bible discussion group we were talking about the assurance of our salvation. A good friend said that if you want to know if you have the seal of God’s Holy Spirit to look for the Fruit of the Spirit in your life. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. (Galations 5:22-23 NKJV) He said that if you can see the Fruit of the Spirit in your life then you can be sure God is working through you, and sure of your salvation.
In addition, fruit comes with its own seeds, so you’re spreading seeds when you’re bearing and sharing the Fruit of the Spirit. Hopefully these thoughts gives you that “Blessed Assurance” we sing about and truly helps you enjoy this Christmas Season. If you want to know which came first, the seed or the fruit, then I suggest your read Genesis 1:11-12. (Ha! Ha!) On the other hand, God and His words have no beginning or end, they are eternal. Anyhow, why not give or send someone a fruit basket? Merry Christmas to you and yours.
