If a fruit tree bears fruit, it is useful to its owner and thus, it fulfills its purpose. If it does not bear fruit, it is useless to its owner and thus, never fulfills its purpose...bearing fruit. It is the same for followers of Jesus Christ (Christians). If we don't bear fruit as Christians we are useless to the Master and thus, we don't fulfill our purpose. This doesn't mean we are rejected from His salvation. It does mean however, that we are not useful to Jesus. Bearing fruit for Jesus as a Christian means we are useful to Jesus, and we will be used by Him. The key to bearing fruit is growing up in Jesus. These messages show us the significance of growing to maturity in Jesus, and how it can be achieved. May you be blessed and encouraged to grow up in Him!
