Read: Matthew 7:15-20
Think: Thinking about the “fruit” in your life, how many people would know you were a Christian just by your actions? What makes you different than your non-Christian friends, other than that you go to church? How have you grown to look more like Jesus in the past year? You need to ask yourself these hard questions to know where your heart is.
Pray: Jesus, make me a tree that bears a ton of fruit. I want to look more like you, and I want others to know you. Help me to stick close to you, because without you I can’t bear any fruit (John 15:5).
Apply: Take an inventory of the “fruit” in your life. How have you seen God at work in you and through you over the last year? How are you living in light of the resurrection of Jesus and the resurrection in your life?
