Different people with different choices. This principle is equally applicable in the choices of fruit that people eat. Some prefer apple to orange. Some easily fall in love with strawberry and pineapple is the favorite of some people. On the other hand, some may prefer a blend of assorted fruits. In this country where there is abundant of different fruits chasing dollar, we have access to so many fruits we are willing to eat as long as we have means to purchase them.
On the other hand, there are other fruits that are available to mankind that we can partake in. It ranges from the fruit of our labor of love, fruit of repentance, fruit of righteousness, fruit of salvation and fruit of obedience to the commandments of God. All these spiritual fruits are not available in the market. They are not color coded like red strawberry and yellow ripe orange. They do not grow on the tree and cannot be purchased with money. They are not vitamin C and antioxidant enriched like fruits harvested from the plants. They are spiritual character choices that are available to individual believers according to the various precepts of the word of God in the Bible.
At the same time anyone that can make a wise choice and live day by day by the available spiritual fruits will be blessed thereof. “Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.” (Matthew 12:33,35) NIV “If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land.” (Isaiah 1:19) We all want to eat good fruit of our labors and we all want to be blessed with good things of the land but we must all prepare to receive them. We must endeavor to do what it takes to sow into the Spirit so that we may harvest the abundance of blessing of God. Yieldedness and obedience to the the word of God are the preparation and the price required to partake in the blessing of God. In humility please take the advantage of the grace of salvation and be incorporated into the covenant of the blessing of God. Your Jericho wall will be subdued and you will be endowed with divine access to walk into your inheritance to possess it, in Jesus name, Amen.
Prayer: O Lord, grant me the grace to be willing to pay the price of righteousness and obedience so that I can partake in the spiritual good fruit of this land for your glory, in Jesus name, Amen.
