WE ARE HIS AND OUR LIVES SHOW IT
Evidence Of The Reality That We Claim
Christ in us, the hope of glory.   Our destiny to serve others was set by God in the beginning.

". . . the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." 
John 14: 26-27  NIV

Fruit is everything.  Even at the beginning of Jesus’ ministry, John the Baptist spoke of it.  At the end of Jesus' ministry he talked about evidence being all important.  The branches that produce no fruit will be cut down, John said.  Jesus later said those who gave water, food, kindness to people in need would be ushered into the Kingdom.   Our Actions grow out of who we are.   And we are judged on who we are, not what we proclaim.

I believe the kind of fruit that matters in heaven is an action that expresses godly love.    God expects us to portray his loving kindness to others.  Action grows out of what is in one's heart.   For my own sake, it is important to know if my heart is full of God's love or just slightly infected by it.    The evidence of my love or the lack thereof is crucial to me.  How else I can correct my course.

When Christ's spirit resides in one's heart there is a dynamic potential  -- compassion seeking a target.   The servant of Christ not in an anxious way, but in peace and patience, is watchful for someone who needs His love.  By the Spirit he, or she, knows when to take action, and how to do it.
