"Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize?...Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly;" 2 Cor 9:24-26

How’s Your Fruit?

Posted by Emma on September 9, 2009 | Filed under: Analogies,Christianity,Daily Thought


“Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” Matthew 7:20 


Jesus is talking here about false prophets. He tells us that we will know false prophets by their fruit. If they are bad they will not be bearing good fruit, likewise if they are good they will not be bearing bad fruit. The same test can be done of Christians. If we are truly following God we should be producing good fruit, the fruit of the Spirit. If people looked at your life would they see good fruit or bad fruit? Can they tell that you are a Christian?

“Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?” -Corrie Ten Boom


Spare Tire

Fallow Ground

Posted by Emma on September 2, 2009 | Filed under: Christianity,Daily Thought,Repentance

“Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.” -Hosea 10:12

Repent! Seek the Lord until He rains righteousness on you. Do not give up. Preparing a field, sowing, reaping and harvesting is hard work, it doesn’t happen overnight. So to we should not expect God to rain righteousness on us overnight. It takes time and hard work as we seek the Lord, weed out sin  and break up the fallow ground.
