“By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.” (Hebrews 13:15)
What kind of fruit are we bearing as children of the King? Are we praising Him when we speak? Are we praising Him with our actions? Or do we bring shame to Him? Do we thank Him? These are the types of fruit that he bears when he is growing as a Christian.
How can we grow and bear good spiritual fruit? Just like any garden needs sun, rain and good soil to grow good and healthy fruit, so does the believer. We need the Son (1 John 5:12) – we need the water of the Word (Ephesians 5:26)- and we need the convicting of the Holy Spirit in our lives (John 14:26).
We can either bear good fruit, spotted fruit or rotten fruit. They all reflect the condition of our spiritual walk.
