John 15:16 NKJV
[16] You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.

Good Morning!

Jesus tells us in John 15 that it we are to “Go” and bear fruit. Go is the order of Christian service by all of us who are saved. Bearing fruit comes in many forms; love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness — these are the things that God loves us to do for others. He tells us against these things there is no law, meaning we are to practice them every day in as many circumstances as we can. This is truly the heart of Jesus and His ministry and should be how we pattern ourselves in our daily walk with Him.

Go and bear fruit. A short simple phrase, yet so difficult for believers to do. It is easy to get distracted by the bad fruit that the world has to offer. But if Jesus is the vine and we are the branches, than we MUST be focused on only bearing good fruit. You wouldn’t want to make wine with sour or rancid grapes, nor would you want to make apple pie out of rotten apples.

The good fruit that we bear is the mark that is so easily seen by others when we act in a WWJD  (What Would Jesus Do) mentality. Good fruit is also referred to as being a light bearer. We are the only light in this world that some people that you personally know will ever see. So take responsibility in that, making sure that your light is pure and your fruit is good. God will do the rest in working in the hearts of people. By His Holy Spirit, He will work on their hearts and draw them unto Himself. It is not by our might, nor by our power, but by His Spirit.

Zechariah 4:6 NKJV
[6] So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the LORD of hosts.

Be encouraged and blessed today and be bearers of good fruit in all you do and don’t be afraid to let God prune you once in a while.

I love you and am praying for you today!
