Are Your Fruits Good Or Bad?

What kind of fruits are you producing? Are you producing fruits that are good for your soul or are you producing fruits that are bad and rotten to your core?

You’ve heard it said, “You will know them by their fruits…” Matthew 7:16, but do you really know what it means? It’s really simple to know your fruits.

When the bible talks about the bad fruits, it is talking about the Fruits of the Flesh which are:

  • Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings… Galatians 5:19-21

When the bible talks about the good fruits, it is talking about the Fruits of the Spirit which are:

  • Love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance…. Galatians 5:22-23

Its obvious that it’s better to walk in the Spirit than to walk in the flesh. For those who walk in the flesh will not inherit the kingdom of God.

“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-10

So fill yourself with the Fruits of the Spirit and eradicate the Fruits of the Flesh.

Who is God?

He is light“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.” 1 John 1:5

He is peace“Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.” 2 Corinthians 13:11

He is merciful“Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.” Psalm 116:5

He is forgiving“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

He is kind“But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.” Luke 6:35

He is good“And they sang together by course in praising and giving thanks unto the LORD; because he is good, for his mercy endureth for ever toward Israel. And all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the LORD, because the foundation of the house of the LORD was laid.” Ezra 3:11

He is faithful“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Deuteronomy 7:9

He is love… “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.”  1 John 4:8

He is giving“But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.” James 4:6

He is also much more than all of the above.
