Isaiah 11:1 A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.

Isaiah was written hundreds of years before Jesus was born in Bethlehem.  Isaiah knew Jesus would be coming.  Jesus indirectly referred to this verse when He said He is the vine and we are the branches.  Jesus bore fruit.  We cannot bear fruit unless we abide in Jesus – the vine.  Our question today is are we abiding in Jesus?  We can tell by looking for the fruits.  The fruits of the Holy Spirit are listed in the 5th chapter of Galatians.  Lets take time today to refresh our minds on these fruits and ask God to bring growth to them in us.  In order to prepare the way for His Kingdom to come on earth we must be bearing fruits.
