We are going to bear fruit no matter how we live. We don't have control on the time of growth or when the fruit is ready for picking, but we can choose who we bear fruit for -- death or Life.
"For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace." Romans 8:6
This is one of our main reasons to live, to bear fruit. God loves fruit!
"'You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you.'"
Let's bear that incredible, God fruit. To do this, listen to and obey His voice.
Don't worry (this is unbelief and it does you no good and there is no way you are bearing fruit for God as you worry-- if you catch yourself worrying get your mind back on Jesus).
Don't do things your way. Do things God's way.
Be thankful no matter what.
Be honest and vulnerable.
Be joyful. See verse below:
"Jesus answered and said to them, "'This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.'" John 6:29
