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.
