Fruit is produced even when you are not trying to produce fruit. In the same way that a witness, is a witness in both the positive and negative times (both positively and negatively). We bear fruit both positively and negatively. We have to be careful. We will not live a perfect life, but there are things that we should avoid to keep from bearing negative fruit. Negative fruit comes from wrong choices like sin, pride, and selfishness. We bear negative fruit by indulging in things that are not of God.
The world sees that negative fruit and generalizes that to all of Christianity. When they see a televangelist fall because of adultery or tax evasion the world immediately says, “See all Christians are hypocrites.” Therefore it is important that We strive to bear good fruit.
Are you bearing negative fruit?
