CONCERNING BEARING FRUIT

THE BIBILE SAYS

Compiled by Daniel L. Wakefield

 

·         Psalm 1:3-4                    And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.  The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

 

·         Matthew 7:18-20           A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.  Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.  Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

 

·         Matthew 13:23               But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

 

·         Matthew 13:30               Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

 

·         Mark 11:13-14                And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.  And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever.  And his disciples heard it.

 

·         John 15:2,4,5,8              Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit…

4        abide in me, and I in you.  As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide

in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.  5  I am the vine, ye are the branches.  He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing…8  Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

 

·         John 15:16                     Ye have not chose me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

 

·         Galations 5:22               But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

 

·         Colossians 1:10            That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

 

·         Hebrews 6:8                  But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.
