As Christ followers, we are appointed to go and bear fruit. This photo isn’t of fruit that will last, but as we obey God’s commands, his fruit in our life will last and that’s the kind of fruit that shows others that we are his followers. And as we obediently follow him, our hearts’ desire nothing else except what he wants. And then he gives us whatever we ask for in his name, because it is according to His Will. The more years I follow Christ, the more challenging it becomes to obey his commands, they are not easy, they cannot be followed without his Spirit, they are impossible to follow on my own will, and it is then that I realize how much more of my own will I still need to surrender to Him. I desire to bear His fruit, but I have to surrender my own will and follow Him and his commands. He never said it would be easy and I’ve learned it isn’t. But my time here isn’t about me, and what I want, IT IS about eternity and I pray the fruit he produces in my life lasts for all eternity.
