The Fruit…

The Fruit…

In Genesis, we read of the fall of man. It centered on the partaking of the forbidden fruit. All sin comes from this act- the partaking of the fruit. What about redemption?

Before He gave His life to bring redemption, Jesus celebrated the Passover. The Passover involves drinking “the fruit of the vine”. The Passover cup is filled with the juice of crushed fruit. As we all fell in the partaking of Adam’s fruit, Jesus led His disciples to partake of the fruit of His sacrifice for our redemption.

In the case of the Cup of Jesus, the fruit of the vine represents His blood, His sacrifice, and His atoning death. Therefore, we have two fruits. So what’s the antidote to the fruit of sin?

The more you partake of the love, the grace, the forgiveness, the sacrifice, the gift, the miracle of God’s gift to you, and the life of Jesus given to save you from hell, the more your life will be free from the power of sin, death, and the fall. In the end, it all comes down to fruit. Which one you choose.

Scripture: A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit Matthew 7:18

Today, fill yourself and rejoice in the blessings of God for your life, and be free from that sin.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
