Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
A fruit is the best evidence or proof of the nature of a plant. A mango tree produces mango and not oranges. Thus Jesus wants us to produce fruits. Now that we have become born again and received the nature of righteousness as a gift, Jesus wants us to live with and manifest proofs or evidence of our new nature. Jesus wants God and men to see the evidence of what He has done in your life because that will bring glory and satisfaction to God.
Since God created man He has always longed for our fruitfulness. That’s why he blessed man to be fruitful. This is the truth:
“Behold, the husbandman [God] waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.” (James 5:7).
One other type of fruit that we are expected by our nature as righteous beings to bear is the fruit of our lips which is thanksgiving. Satan doesn’t want you to yield any good fruit at all; least of all the great fruit of your lips. All the while he mutated man to the point that man does not have the capacity to produce God desired of fruit
Do you want to bear the type of fruit that God desires to see you bear? Well, you cannot be taught how to produce the fruits God is talking about. Rather you need a change of nature to be able to do so. Thus Jesus says:
“Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.” O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things?” (Matt 12:33-34)
You can achieve this by giving your life to Jesus. All you have to do is confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus while believing that God raised him from the dead. If you’ve been born again this way, the ability to bear fruit is in you. Just decide to praise God no matter what. The Holy Spirit will fill you with joy to do so. Go ahead and make God proud
- Thank you Father for creating in me the ability to bear fruits to your glory.
- I’m yielding fruits in the name of Jesus. I cannot be barren.
- I am a living proof of the grace and righteousness of God in Christ Jesus
