By Their Fruits…

“You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles?”
Matthew 7:16 (NKJV)

The fruit of the Spirit includes LOVE, JOY and PEACE.  Galatians 5:22-23 tells us, “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.”

We all need to ask ourselves, “Are these being manifested in my life?”  If the answer is no, or I am not sure, we need to ask ourselves, “Am I still on fire for God and His Word, or am I falling asleep?”

The Word of God clearly warns us about this.  We read in Romans 13:11, “And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.” 

This is a serious warning to all of us to be vigilant and keep our fire burning brightly though the Power of the Holy Spirit!! 

Prayer
Lord Jesus, please empower us with your Holy Spirit so that our fire burns brightly and we are a light to all who are around us.
Amen
