23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.
After being born-again and filled with the Holy Ghost, believers bear the fruits of godliness. Those who are with Jesus Christ bear the fruits of holiness and love.
The fruits of godliness are proof that we are with Jesus Christ – “by their fruits ye shall know them” (Matthew 7:15-20). Our position with Jesus Christ must be well defined. All the proofs of being with Him must show in our lives.
It is not enough to manifest the gifts of the Spirit, without expressing the fruit of godliness. It is good to desire spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 14:1), but we must follow after godliness. We must push, not merely desire, to bear the fruit of the Spirit (1 Timothy 6:11-12). A person with spiritual power without the fruit of godliness is a ticking time bomb waiting to go off.
1. Pray for the diligence and discipline to bear the fruit of the Spirit.
2. Pray also that by your godly life many will see your good works and glorify the Father.
