Unfruitful

Why do the unfaithful remain unsaved? Why are the unsaved unfruitful?

  •  When they hear the message about the Kingdom of God and do not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart.
  • When trouble or persecution comes because of the Word of God, they quickly fall away.
  • When the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke their life, they become unfruitful.

Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is the seed sown along the path. The one who received the seed that fell on rocky places is the man who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. But since he has no root, he lasts only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, he quickly falls away. The one who received the seed that fell among the thorns is the man who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke it, making it unfruitful. But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.” Matthew 13:18-23

What is the evidence of your salvation?

Genuine Disciples of Christ recognize their victory over sin and death and their new life of Righteousness in Christ. Genuine Disciples of Christ recognize a growing pattern of forgiveness. Genuine Disciples of Christ recognize a growing pattern of love. Genuine Disciples of Christ recognize an earnest desire and hunger for the Word of God. Genuine Disciples of Christ have been healed from the power of sin in their life. Genuine Disciples of Christ want to tell others about salvation and their own healing. Genuine Disciples of Christ will learn to grow away from the pain of sin.

If faith has not changed you, it has not saved you. The evidence of your salvation is through your changed life. Salvation is a moment in time. Genuine Disciples of Christ who are truly saved people will bear fruit.

Are you unfruitful or fruitful? Not everyone who calls HIM Lord will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. There are a lot of people who believe in Jesus but have not become converted and changed. Is there evidence of your conversion and salvation?
