Jesus said in Matthew 7:20 that whether a person lives to do good or not is determined by visible evidence.

So then, you will know them by their fruits.”

Jesus also said in John 15:8 that His disciples are to bear fruit for God.

Are you? Am I?

I encourage you to take an honest look at your life in this respect.

Would all the people at your job or school define you as an encourager? Or do some hear discouraging words drain from your lips?

Would the people at your congregation define you as a hard worker for the Kingdom? Or one hardly working?

Would the people in your family define you as one whose quickly forgiving nature closely imitates the God who desires nobody to perish in hell?

God is not afraid of evaluation. In fact, He encourages people to check His record in human life and choose Him as Lord.

“The LORD is known by his acts of justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands” (Psalm 9:16)

Please give those around you evidence today that you live for God. I’ll attempt to do the same. As our “just” living becomes better known within our circles of influence, our ability to bless others and lead others to Jesus will grow.

And some we know just might choose to leave behind the trap-filled and turmoil-filled lives that is too often tangled up in trouble.

As always, I love you
