Fruit Inspection!

Fruit Inspection! Luke 6:43-45 Main Point : Messiah Jesus teaches us that if we are true followers of His then we will bear good fruit in our lives – we must examine our fruit which is the true evidence of our hearts. Matthew 7:15-20 Fruit represents our words, actions, attitudes – our heart! Recognize (ginosko) = to know, perceive, have knowledge of 1. We are to understand that only a good heart (true follower of Christ) will bring forth good fruit, for a ‘corrupt’ tree cannot. (verse 43) Ephesians 5:8-10 2.We are to examine our lives – to see what kind of fruit we are bearing which reveals whether our hearts are corrupt or good (good in nature, by purity of heart) (verse 44) II Corinthians 13:5 3. We must desire to have good hearts by abiding in Christ for only then will the overflow be good fruit. Abide = stay connected to by faith and obedience! John 15:1-5
