The Good Fruit

apple-1532055_1920

Good Morning Peeps,

Too often, I tend to get distracted while planning, planting, watering, growing, and harvesting. The love of money, power, fame, fortune, lust, greed, and other evil ways are always knocking at the door of your heart, lying and trying to find new ways to get into my house. We recognize the lies based on our Bible studies and readings, which reminds us of our Love for God, His Commandments, and Lifestyles of Truth.

The Good Fruit

When a farmer plants, fruit trees, they must produce fruit or they get the ax.  Good seeds, land, soil, water, sunlight, air, nutrients, and work are required, as we labor.  People who labor in bad, shady practices produce Bad Fruit and may become rich in their schemes.  Yet, the Good Farmer does it right the first time and patiently gets justice at the end of the race. Money is not an issue, your Good Deeds, Faith, and Labor of Love, which comes from your heart is what grows your Good Fruit!

The Good Ax

When a tree does not yield good fruit after all of the labor, energy, time, and resources, you chop it down and burn it.  It is my responsibility to know that my tree of life will be chopped down and thrown into the lake of fire for eternity, if I choose to waste my life, my tree, and not produce Good Fruit.  Whatever I do, the process and the results must bring about Good Fruit or it will get the Ax.

The Good Warning

I may have dead branches that will need to be pruned, cut back so that more fruit will grow in the future.  I look for those dead branches to trim myself so that my energy is used in the production of Good Fruit.  I can not rely on my parents’ Good Fruit to buy my way out of responsibility and accountability.  I know what to do, what to study, how to pray, and accept the Truth of God.

The Good Voice

I can hear the Voice of God in the Words I read from the Bible, as I pray, study, and think about daily application, work, and objectives.  I fit it all in as if God is standing in the room.  Sometimes, I fail, I fall, I forget, I ignore, I resist, I waver. Yet, I recall, repent, repair, replenish, remind, renew, realign, and rewind my thinking to rewire my heart with repentance and change.  My actions become better and I learn from my mistakes.  Learn from your mistakes and accept the truth.
Have a Blessed Day!

Matthew 3King James Version (KJV)

In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,

And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.

Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan,

And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.

But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.

14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?

15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Love Y’all,
Jonathan
