God’s intention that you just flow through life and produce fruit.

“I tell you, if these become silent, the stones will cry out!”
LUK 19:39-40

JOH 15:16, “You did not choose Me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit, and {that} your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask of the Father in My name, He may give to you.”

ROM 7:4, Therefore, my brethren, you also were made to die to the Law through the body of Christ, that you might be joined to another, to Him who was raised from the dead, that we might bear fruit for God.

In the second and the third category were those ones that became unfruitful, while in the last one, in the commendable category, the “who hears the Word and understands it who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”

MAT 3:23, “And the one on whom seed was sown on the good soil, this is the man who hears the word and understands it; who indeed bears fruit, and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty.”

What God intended for Christians was not just to believe but also to change.

It is not God’s intention that you just flow through life.

God created you a unique creature, He gifted YOU, and He did that uniquely, and then He also commissioned and empowered you to do one thing: to go forth and bring fruit.

God has gifted each and every child of His, from the youngest to the oldest, from the poorest to the richest, from the illiterate to the most educated, He has gifted them uniquely and desires for them to bear much fruit.

JOH 15:8, “By this is My Father glorified, that you bear much fruit, and {so} prove to be My disciples.”

JOH 15:1-2, “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every {branch} that bears fruit, He prunes it, that it may bear more fruit.”

This is why He takes special care to prune, to cleanse, those that bring fruit so that they bring more!

The Father does not want to just have vine branches. He wants them to become fruitful branches, branches that give fruit to their full potential.

ACT 20:35, “In everything I showed you that by working hard in this manner you must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

Take Peter and the others – most of them fishermen of the first century were not professionals in this sense.

There are others again that though they have believed, you can really see no fruit or change in their life.

Are you willing to be shown proof, that faith apart from good works is inactive and ineffective and worthless?

Abraham’s faith was cooperating with his works, and his faith was completed and reached its supreme expression when he implemented it by [good] works.

Abraham believed in, trusted in, and relied on, God, and this faith was accredited to him or imputed to him as righteousness.

But Christian life without change or the Christian life without fruit is an oxymoron.
An oxymoron is a figure of speech in which two words with opposite meanings are used together intentionally for effect;
Therefore, it is a contradiction in terms.

It’s an open secret that the larger half in the marriage is clearly confused.

All you got to do is act naturally when you’re alone together with
Hell’s Angels.

Sometimes oxymoron’ are used a means of sarcasm such as what I just said to you is seriously funny even for the military intelligence who tell us Microsoft Works.

I mean you can get pretty ugly and reveal a genuine imitation of the exact estimate ever y time you butt heads with your
student teacher especially when he tapes live with his tight slacks which is the same old news.

I think you, got the message and so you can go and get some hot chili with a smart portugee.

Now, then
The believer who has experienced genuine brokenness from responding to the Potter’s wheel of progress, wants to get closer and closer to God the Father and His Son.
