Matthew 12:33

“Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is known by its fruit. [NET]

Ebenezer accepted Christ into his life. The next step he took was to cram the Ten Commandments and every other scriptural commandment he could learn because he wanted to be righteous before God. It didn’t take him long to realize that he was not righteous by merely keeping the commandments; he was only religious. The fruit was modified and decorated, but the tree was not yet made good because he was focusing on the fruit and not the tree.

One mistake Christians make is what our Lord pointed out in today’s Bible text. You don’t get good fruits by focusing on the fruit. You get good fruits by focusing on the tree. When the tree is good, the fruit will also be good. Your heart is the part of you that determines your outcomes in life. Make your heart good and the fruit of your life will be good. Any heart that has not been transformed cannot bring forth good fruit.

The Holy Spirit comes to indwell the believer and empowers his heart with the life that is capable of producing good fruits before God. We water and purify our hearts by allowing the word of God change us. We let the transformation work of the Lord in our hearts by hearing God’s word and changing our thinking and culture to that of Christ. Anything in us that is still contrary to the culture of Christ is a disease of the heart that inhibits spiritual fruitfulness. A quintessential example is the love of money.

Go into today determined to make God’s word the standard for your life.

Ask the Lord to empower you abandon every worldly culture and adopt the culture of Christ.
