We were saved for good works,
So where is the fruit we bear?
Jesus took away our sins,
Because of how He cares.
Where is the love,
That was shown by Jesus our Lord?
It leads to peace,
And walking in one accord.
Where is the joy,
And the happiness in your heart?
You have the seeds of greatness.
That is where you should start.
Where is the faith,
That helps us in longsuffering in life?
We can walk in victory,
And walk through all the strife.
Where is the gentleness,
That flows from the Master’s hand?
He came to restore the beauty,
In this battered and broken land.
Where is the goodness,
That can overcome the bad?
Where is the hand that gives,
To those who are hurt and sad?
Put the murmuring behind you.
Be fruit bearers here on earth.
God knows your value.
Jesus gave you your worth.
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Jesus saved us from our sins so that we could do good. He wants us to bear His fruit. We can do this because His Spirit lives within us, but we must remind ourselves who we are. Salvation was instant when you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, but salvation does not stop there. When we received this pure and perfect gift, we should be willing to share it. We should share this perfect love with others. We have good works in us, but we have to work them out of our spirit. Be fruit bearers. Take the fruit of the Spirit and share it with others.
