Bear Fruit for Eternal Life
Jesus requires of those who follow Him, to bear fruit, or else they will be cut off and burned.
Here is how to bear fruit. We read in John 4:36 Jesus said to His disciples: "Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest. 36“Already he who reaps is receiving wages and is gathering fruit for life eternal; so that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. 37“For in this case the saying is true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ 38“I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored and you have entered into their labor.”
Bearing fruit is about making disciples of Jesus Christ. We read in Matthew 28:18. Jesus spoke to His disciples, saying: “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Are we bearing fruit for eternity? Are we making disciples of Jesus Christ?
May Jesus bless you.
