Do you bear My Name? How do they know? How do you know? It is in the Spirit of the Father of light that the life transformed by My light would glow that many would see. Do you bear the fruit of My Name? Rejoice then as you see those responding to the light within you. Find joy in their response, even if small, for in this is the evidence of your salvation. For with each the Father draws, and to each that responds to that draw, through the blood of My Name is cleansed and made new for this work of the Kingdom. In each you will see a collection left in time, good fruit borne of a good tree, season after season. A trail of good works are the footprints of he who is saved for such – light given in darkness, blessing given in want, love given in the void of indifference, souls of the lost lead to My light. My holy gifts given that great fruit is borne, and then with abundance given again. It is this Light of Life, left behind in the following that bears truth to who truly follows My voice. And at the end of the journey, though the follower’s hands may show empty, it is the Father, through the witness of the Son, who recounts the treasure of the life lived for the Kingdom. And to you the same. From that counting, great and eternal, your reward.
Eph 2:8-10 (ESV) – For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
Bottom Line: A true follower of Jesus will bear fruit. When a life is transformed, or in the midst of transformation, it is changed from the inside, and then outwardly shows an obvious desire to live rightly and do good. Thankfulness wells up in the redeemed heart, and it just can’t be helped. Being we spend so much time in the workplace, this is the ideal place to follow the Holy Spirit’s lead in doing good for others. We may receive grief from others if we speak our faith at work, but practicing our faith at work will never draw a complaint. So listen to His voice, and enjoy doing good to others in the workplace. It is treasure stored up in heaven, and is the desire of a transformed heart anyway!
