The Fruit of Your Labor
As we discussed yesterday, our perpetuation of sin is work. The Bible teaches that our labor always produces fruit. That’s what I want us to consider today.
Points to Ponder
- The key to bearing much good fruit is to stay connected to the Vine.
- A bad tree cannot produce good fruit.
- Jesus had much to say about bearing fruit. See Luke 13:6-9; Luke 8:4-8, 11-15; Matthew 13:1-23; Mark 4:3-20.
- In his letter to the Romans, Paul tells us clearly what kind of crop we can expect from the works of the flesh. (Romans 7:5; Romans 8:6).
Something To Think About
How are you making sure you stay connected to the Vine? Take some time to consider, are your works producing a greater abundance of good fruit or bad fruit?
