Scripture for the day:

Colossians 1:5-6 and 10 Because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you have already heard in the word of truth, the gospel; 6 Which has come to you. In all the world it brings forth fruit and grows, as it does also in you, since the day you heard of it, and understood the grace of God in truth:
10 That you might walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please him in all things, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; (RKJNT)

Thought for the day

Colossians 1:6 and 10 introduce an action word karpophoreo (kar-pof-or-eh’-o) meaning making fruit in great quantities; be fertile. Notice verse 5 “the word of truth, the gospel…brings forth fruit and grows“; can we agree that from these Scriptures the unity of Christ, the Spirit and the word working in us will produce fruit.

The fruit that the Spirit produces cannot be imitated, I remind you, Jesus clearly states that we cannot do anything without Him (see John 15:2-8). Be fruitful in good works and be blessed— Tim.
