All of us want the benefits of the fruit evidenced in our lives. It’s easy to talk about the benefits and blessings of walking with God and we are drawn to the idea of having that fruit. After all, who doesn’t want love, peace, joy, gentleness, the assurance of goodness and kindness demonstrated in our lives.
However, you must ask yourself one question. Do I have any root?
You can not produce fruit without being rooted and grounded in your faith. Christ must be the center of your life if you want to see the manifestation of fruit flow through your life. You must be regenerated by God’s spirit.
Regeneration is a radical transformation. We begin to seek things that are divine and live a life of faith and as result peace with God. That is the greatest fruit of all.
