FRUIT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

Posted by:

Our calling goes far beyond the foot of the cross. Our calling does not end at the cross, but begins at the cross. Our salvation is not the completed work of God but the beginning of what God seeks to do in our lives.
Philippians 1: 6 -Being confident of this very thing that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;


The word ‘work’ taken from verse 6 comes from the Greek word ergon, which literally means ‘to produce an accomplished product by hand’
Paul is telling you to be confident in your fellowship in the gospel knowing that your relationship with God means that God works in you with individual, careful attention so that He can bring you into heaven as an accomplished treasure fashioned by His own hand. You are an individual treasure with such immense value that the Bible says that the entire world does not compare to the value of your soul.


Be sincere: To be sincere means to be found pure when unfolded and examined by the sun’s light. We easily justify our actions but God unfolds our hearts and examines our intents along with our actions. You might tell yourself that you are acting out for noble reasons, but God unfolds your intentions like a book. His word reveals whether your motives were out of love or self-centeredness. Your goal should be to live sincerely to do His will so that when you are examined, you will be found pure in the light of His word Philippians 1:9-11- And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; 10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ. 11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
