Matthew 12:33 “Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit.”
The Scene: A fruit tree in full bloom, ready for harvesting. In the sky 3 birds symbolic of the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit watching over God’s creation.
Matthew 13:8 “Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop–a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”
The Holy Spirit has been sown in Father God’s people, believers in Jess Christ, the only Son of God, our Savior–as such we have been given ears to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit within us.
Matthew 11:15 “He who has ears, let him hear.”
1 Peter 2:9 “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
Psalm139:13-14 “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
We are God’s people who are capable of bearing good fruit, when we listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit.
Galatians 5:22-23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”
