As believers, we’re to be productive in our Christian lives.

He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season….                                             

–Psalm 1:3

 

As believers, we’re to be productive in our Christian lives.

 

The fruit mentioned above is the fruit of the Spirit, or Christ-like character. It’s what Paul talks about in Galatians 5:22-23 when he says, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”

 

Remember in the Gospel of Mark, Jesus cursed a fig tree that produced nothing but leaves. He cursed it because it bore no fruit. And God is inspecting our lives for spiritual fruit.

 

I want to challenge you to be a reproducer…a reproducing believer in Christ. Because a healthy body reproduces! And a healthy Christian will reproduce spiritual fruit: the fruit of character and the fruit of bringing people to Christ.

 

A true man or woman of God reproduces spiritual fruit.
