Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you!
I found this devotion in a book called "Truth For Today", by John MacArthur. May the LORD speak to you through this message.
What kind of fruit brings glory to GOD? Philippians 1:11 says, "Being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by JESUS CHRIST, to the glory and praise of GOD." Righteousness, which is doing right, is the fruit GOD desires in our lives. when we do right, we glorify GOD; when we do wrong, we dishonor HIM. Fruit is synonymous with righteousness.
There are two kinds of spiritual fruit: action fruit, which consists of giving, leading others to CHRIST, and the attitude fruit, which is expressing thanks to GOD. Galations 5:22-23 describes attitude fruit: "The fruit of the SPIRIT is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, fatihfulness, gentleness, self-control."
How do you get the right attitudes? Galations 5:25 says, "If we live in the SPIRIT , let us also walk in the SPIRIT."
As you yield control of your life to the HOLY SPIRIT, HE will permeate your life and produce the proper fruit.
GOD Bless You!
