Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

 

A Fruitful Life
by Charles R. Swindoll

We have not ceased to pray for you . . . 
that you will walk in a manner worthy 
of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, 
bearing fruit in every good work. . . . Colossians 1:9–10

Have you ever been in an area of the country where there was a lot of fruit ripening in the sun?

Maybe on some cool September morning you've taken a walk through the apple orchards of the Hood River valley or along the Columbia River in Oregon. It is pleasing to the eye to see such an abundance of sweet, delicious fruit hanging on branch or vine, ready to be plucked.

A fruitful Christian life is like that—sweet, refreshing, nourishing, fragrant, sustaining, delightful to be near. But such a life requires careful cultivation. . . . 

A deeper, more consistent walk with Christ requires time and attention every day. If that happens, you will bear fruit.
