Colossians 1:10. so that you may live worthily of the Lord and please him in all respects – bearing fruit in every good deed, growing in the knowledge of God,

Pleasing God in all aspects of our lives.  What a high goal that is.  That means in our thoughts as well as our actions or inactions.  Where do we get the knowledge of what pleases God?  We get it through the Holy Spirit in prayer and meditation on the scriptures.  As we gain knowledge and insight the fruits will grow and bear more fruit and as they grow and bear more fruit our knowledge will grow.  Growing in knowledge takes action on our part.  Our question is will we choose to take the time and effort required?    Knowledge cannot grow by osmosis.  A fruit tree will die if left unattended.  Fruit must be picked to continue to bear more fruit.  Let us choose to ripen our fruit through prayer and meditation on God’s Word and actively use that fruit through our actions so the Holy Spirit can grow more fruit within us.
