If The Fruit Is Not Right, There Is Something Wrong With The Tree

“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light–for the fruit of the light results in all goodness, righteousness, and truth–discerning what is pleasing to the Lord.” Ephesians 5:8-10 (HCSB)
If we are saved we automatically do good because of the goodness of God who abides in our hearts. We will live righteously because of the righteousness of Christ which is imputed to us. Righteousness within produces righteousness without–a pure heart produces pure thoughts, pure thoughts produce pure actions. Thus the life of the true believer will be pure, setting an example before the unsaved which will create within them a desire to know Christ as their Savior. We who profess to be saved should take stock of our life and see how our daily living measures up to the trinity of fruits produced by the light. If the fruit is not right, there is something wrong with the tree. Jesus said, “By their fruits you shall know them.”
