Fresh Fruit

How often are we living our lives in moldy love, old joy and last month’s peace? 

Fruit is best when it is fresh.

– Fruit is fragile.
– Fruit is beautiful.
– Fruit nourishes.

– Fruit isn’t achieved by working, but is birthed by abiding.

Here is Galatians 5:22 in the Amplified Translation, But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness,”

If you want fresh joy to infuse your spirit, you don’t get it by trying to be joyful- you get it by abiding in God’s presence.

You can’t walk in God’s peace until you get God’s perspective.

When you focus on God’s faithfulness, a desire to be faithful is birthed within and so on.

How is your spiritual fruit doing?

Are you holding on to moldy love? Jaded joy? Puny peace?

Throw your old fruit out, surrender them all to Jesus. No need to hold on to rotten fruit.

Then get into the light of His love, drink in the rain of His grace, sink your roots deep into His faithfulness, lift your limbs to heaven and enjoy growing fresh fruit.

Fresh fruit is best.

Don’t settle for less – you are not reborn in Christ to live that way.
