The Fruit, the Whole Fruit, and Nothing but the Fruit
Once we become a new creature in Christ, we are given a special gift of "supernatural" vision. This is a gift of discernment in order to protect us from the things we see in the natural. This new vision takes us deeper to see the things that are seen beyond the natural. We no longer trust what our eyes see,we see what our heart sees. God knows that our eyes can be deceiving so He gave us this gift in order to protect us from the wolves in sheep's clothing. As an example,I would like to use my flower garden. Last spring I was checking on my flower garden that I had planted the year before.Much to my delight the flowers I had planted seemed to be flourishing, but soon they looked as they were taking over and nothing was blooming.
Although these imposters took on a similar appearance, upon closer examination I soon realized that they were weeds choking out the original flowers. My precious flowers were being robbed of the essential sunshine and nutrients. Then it came to me, I remembered an important lesson that Jesus taught about discernment. It was simple really. He said you can tell if something is good by the fruit it produces.This not only applies to flowers, but people also. Without hesitation I pulled these seemingly innocent plants out by the roots, therefore giving the good fruit bearing plants a chance to grow and flourish.
Just as I was able to recognize these weeds, our eyes have to be trained to see others for who and what they really are, not just by their outward appearance, but by the fruit they produce.
In his affliction,Job asked of God, "Do You have eyes of flesh? Do You see as a man sees?" God is Spirit so therefore He sees in the Spirit. But God taught Job a valuable lesson to open his spiritual eyes, not only to see his own weaknesses, but to also see God for who He really is. God sees us for who and what we really are, we can't hide from Him the fruit we bear inwardly or outwardly. God also gave us this gift of seeing clearly through His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus came as the Light of the world to teach us that we cannot be wise in our own eyes.
With the newfound ability to see in the Light, we are now able to see when others are in the dark about situations. In this discernment we get a feeling of conviction from the Holy Spirit that warns us of things that don't always appear as they seem.
John 15:8: When you bear,(produce) much fruit, My Father is honored and glorified, and you show and prove yourselves to be true followers of Mine. (Amplified).
How are we to grow and bear good fruit? We must first get rooted and grounded in love. The next time you see someone or something with your 'natural' eyes and it appears to be good, stop and ask yourself, "does it bear good fruit?"
