The Fruit of Faith 8.6.22

The Fruit of Faith 8.6.22

“A tree is identified by its fruit. If a tree is good, its fruit will be good. If a tree is bad, its fruit will be bad.” (Matthew 12:33)

People who are followers of Christ reveal their faith by the way they live their lives. This is because the Holy Spirit is within us cultivating Christlike character.

This is a good test for each of us: do we truly believe? Ask yourself: Is the Holy Spirit building a new heart in me? Can I look back on my life and see that I am making progress in godliness?

This isn't about earning your salvation. That work has been done by Christ. The question is: is your faith merely intellectual, or have you embraced Christ as your Savior and King? If you are His the evidence should be clear.
