We Become Known By Our Fruits

Today's Gospel Truth ~ "Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but the corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.  Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.  Therefore by their fruits ye shall know them."  Matthew 7:17-20

In life in general we are responsible for what we do, the same applies within the life of Faith we must be responsible for everything we say and do.  In most cases in our day to day lives a sermon is not preached from the pulpit, it is instead spoken by the way we live and shared by the Word we speak.  We are all being held responsible for the message of Christ as Believers, and more importantly to make sure that the message we share is in complete accordance to the Word of God. 
When the Gospel is spoken in the correct way it never dies, even as we move on from earth into a new life the sermon will go on forever, as in the case of the sermons we still hear today from Billy Graham, Dwight Moody, C.L. Lewis, and Kathryn Kuhlman just to name a few.  These ministers of the Gospel lived in the experience of the Word of God and shared from their experiences which encouraged the lives of millions to turn to God.  On the other hand when we do not truly represent God's Word as ministers of the Gospel, rather being busy holding positions, using swelling words of vanity we will either be cut off from Ministries or hewn down by death to be cast into hell fire. 

Ministers taking the message of the Gospel of Christ is highly serious responsibility, even more serious than an official hired to transport prestigious information for his government. The message of the Gospel of Christ carries the power within it to release both life and death and the misuse of the divine Word of God can have detrimental consequences.   Even though we know that God allows us his grace and mercy, according to his Word  he will not continue to allow anyone, self claimed or appointed Minister to continue to haughtily and loftily mislead his people while living corrupt lives.  Our text today speaks of the root of the tree, in Ministry if seeds are planted correctly in the right soil we will experience an overflow of radiant branches. 

God said that he watches over his word to perform it, we must remember that this also means he will also perform judgment.  As  Believers, as Ministers, and as Christians we are not exempt from his correction when we falter. This writing today is not being shared to create fear in your mind but it is a friendly reminder to the Brothers and Sisters of Christ that we have a great responsibility when it comes to sharing the Word of God.  God wants each of us to have a personal experience with him, so that when we talk about him we don't become known as control seekers just spraying the air with enticing words to manipulate others to make them feel good for a moment, but rather sowing seeds that will spring forth a desire for Christ. 
Whenever God uses us to share his Life Changing Word from his heart it brings about an effective change within the life of the hearer.  Becoming Effective Change Agents for Christ Is What We Are Called To Do!  Apostle Paul reminded us in his writing to remain in the mind of Christ. {Philippians 2:5}  As we continue in our day to day sharing, whether in Word or Action let us Keep the Mind {The Word} of Christ  ready so that we may share the experience of God's Life Promoting Word to All We Meet. **AMEN**


"Let this mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus,"  Philippians 2:5

Let's Pray

Dear Father,
Right now I humbly come before you to seek your forgiveness of any moment I have selfishly and spoken your Word in any manipulative fashion.  I know that your Word is of the highest order and the power you have placed within the Word is be shared in wisdom.  Please cause your Word to become a sharp and skillful tool in my mouth, give me the understanding, the practical knowledge I need to effectively share your Word with all I meet from this day on in Jesus name, so that you will get the glory at all times.  **AMEN**
