By Your Fruits

This message is a nice explanation from the scriptures about how we became sinners at the time

of conception. So we are not sinners because we sin, but we sin because we are sinners. Christ said it like this,

“ Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.” Matthew 12:33

Either we are in Adam, and our fruit is according to our nature in Adam, OR, we are in Christ, and our fruit is from Him.

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17


“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20

So while we are in this world, those of us who truly believe Christ to the saving of our souls, know that we have a warfare daily with our old nature that is in the flesh while we walk in the newness of life after the Spirit in Christ

Jesus. (Read Romans 6 thru 8 as a commentary on this subject)

I can't think of a more fitting reply to you, except more of the beautiful and poignant scripture you quoted:

14What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? 15Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. 16If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? 17In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. 18But someone will say, "You have faith; I have deeds." Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do. 19You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder. 20You foolish man, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless[d]? 21Was not our ancestor Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 22You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did. 23And the scripture was fulfilled that says, "Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,"[e] and he was called God's friend. 24You see that a person is justified by what he does and not by faith alone.



:icon_biggrin: MERRY CHRISTMAS!! MAY THE PEACE OF THE LORD BE WITH US ALL THROUGH THE HOLIDAY SEASON AND THE NEW YEAR, and MAY YOUR FRUITS SHOW OUR CHRISTIAN FAITH AND LOVE OF OUR LORD! :love:

Love in Christ :love:
