“Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance.” Matthew 3:8 KJV

I have been telling people to stop focusing on the demonstration of spiritual gifts, if they want to know whom true Christians and true Preachers are. They should focus on fruits, not gifts. If they want to know those who have the Spirit of GOD. Even Jesus said, “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” Matthew 7:20 KJV. He didn’t say you’d know His followers by their gifts, He said by “their fruits”. What are the fruits you’d see in someone that has the Spirit of GOD? “…the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.” Galatians 5:22‭-‬23 NKJV.

Fruits are behaviours or characters that people demonstrate, even unconsciously. Gifts are received, but fruits are part of someone’s DNA. They are inside people’s systems. John The Baptist demanded from the religious leaders who ran to him to be baptised. He said, now, show fruits {behaviours} that proves the fact that you have truly repented from your sins. Read it from The Amplified Version: “So produce fruit that is consistent with repentance [demonstrating new behavior that proves a change of heart, and a conscious decision to turn away from sin].” MATTHEW 3:8 AMP.

You cannot say you’re born again, yet you tell lies freely. You fornicate, practise adultery, steal from people, create differences among people, and all kinds of vices. There has to be a difference in your character after repentance. Old things must pass away, and all things around you must become new! If your salvation is questionable because of your present lifestyle, you need to repent genuinely. Behaviours are like smoke, you cannot hide them for long, they will definitely come out. So, if you are truly saved, let’s know by your character and lifestyle.

Have you been blessed by this message? …spread the WORD, share with your friends. As it is written; “The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.” -Psalms 68:11 KJV
