Bear Good Fruit or Get Cut Off And BURNED
Those who believe in Jesus Christ and who accept Him as their Lord and Master, who obey Him, who repent and are baptized and filled with the Holy Spirit, they are BORN AGAIN of the Spirit of God, they become CHILDREN of God, they become SONS OF GOD like Jesus Christ Himself.
Jesus Christ is the True Vine and those who are born again are grafted into the vine, they become branches of the Tue Vine and they bear fruit, like Jesus Himself bears fruit. Jesus Christ produces other Sons of God, Children of God who follow and obey Him. Every branch in Him that does not bear good fruit will get cut off and burned. Every born again son of God, child of God who has become part of the kingdom of God, who has been grafted into the Vine must bear fruit.They must also produce more sons of God, more born again followers of Jesus Christ, sons of the kingdom of God.
If we do not bear fruit we will get cut off and burned. If we do not bear good fruit, disciples, followers of Jesus Christ, then we will get cut off and burned, then we are not worthy of Him.
Are we ourselves good fruit? Are we disciples of Jesus Christ, who are lead by the Spirit of God, who are lead by the Holy Spirit? Do we follow and obey Him and do we bear fruit? Do we make other disciples that are born again, and become children of God, sons of God, like Jesus Christ, replicas of our Lord and Master? Are we bearing good fruit, or are we making believers who still remain in their sin? Are we making bad fruit? Or are we making true children of God, sons of God? Are we bringing others to Jesus? Are we bringing them to the truth? Are they truly born again and do they themselves also produce fruit, more sons of God? Are we building the kingdom of God? Is the kingdom of God growing because we ourselves are fruitful branches in the true vine? Or are we unfruitful? Because if we are unfruitful and we ourselves do not produce good fruit, produce other disciples, born again children of God who follow and obey Jesus Christ, then we will get cut off and burned.
Are we bearing good fruit?
May Jesus bless you.
