Bear Much Fruit

By Charlotte S. Goodrum

 

I once thought bearing much fruit meant to bring others to Christ.  However, saving people is not my job.  I can plant seeds which is my job.  I plant seeds when I bear the fruit of the Spirit.  This is the fruit Jesus is referring to. 

 

I must love people like there is no tomorrow.  I must express my joy in Christ even in my unhappiest moments.  I must allow God’s peace to permeate from every pore in my body.  I must be peaceful even when the people around me are raging.   I must be as patient as God is with me with every soul I encounter.  I must show kindness to everyone including those who hurt me and my family.  I must strive for perfection to be more like Christ.  I must be faithful to my God by trusting Him with every moment of my life.  I must be faithful to my fellow human beings by not hesitating to tell them about God’s soul saving gift.  I must be gentle with every single person because I certainly want them to be gentle with me.  And, I must restrain myself and maintain self-control in any and all situations. 

 

Bearing much fruit may look like a monumental task.  It is if we try to do it alone.  However, if we remain attached to the Vine we will succeed.  We will learn to bear much fruit.

 

John 15:5 (NKJV)

“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
