John 15:8 My Father is honored by this, that you bear much fruit and show that you are my disciples.

God is honored when we bear much fruit.  In our bearing of fruit we demonstrate to the world the love and power of God.  Our question is what is the fruit God wants us to bear and how do we do it.  We read in Galatians 5:22  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  These are the fruits we are to bear.  We cannot grow these fruits on our own.  It takes God’s Holy Spirit within us to plant the seeds of these fruits.  Then it takes the trials and experiences God sends our way to grow the fruits.  I’ve had fruit in a bowl that just sat there.  I could admire it but if I didn’t use it, eat it, it would rot.  As our fruit God grows within us we must be sure to use that fruit in service to God.  This service is in sharing all our fruit with all those God sends our way.  It is through the sharing of these fruits that God is honored and more of His created people can become adopted into His family through His Son, Jesus.  Our question is what are we doing with our fruits?  Are we content to just admire what God is growing in us?  Are we content with just one or two fruits and ignore any others?  Let us honor God in receiving, growing and using all fruits the Holy Spirit brings us.  God wants us to have all the fruits, grow them and use them for His glory.
