Growing Trees For God

These next postings are from a Message I preached on the Family. I hope they are an encouragement to you.

Growing Trees for God

Luke 6:43 - 45

“For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt Fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good Fruit”
“For every Tree is Known by his own Fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.”
“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.”

Proverbs 20:11
“Even a Child is Known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.”


“ Known...” present tense - What others are seeing at the present time.

* A Tree will produce another tree with the Same Characteristics and Fruit as they are.

Example: An Apple Tree will Produce and Apple Tree (Red Delicious - Red Delicious)

* Thought: A Parent will produce a Child with the Same Characteristics and Fruit as they are.

* Each Tree and Person will bear Fruit - that has different Characteristics in and of its Self.

* The Fruit with different Characteristics has a Seed that is able to Produce another Tree after its own Kind. (God Design and Plan)

* Question # 1 - What type of Trees (Children) are you Growing?

* Question # 2 - What kind of Fruit are they bearing? “A Child Is known by their doings (Fruit)”

* A Parent’s Goal (should be) for their children is to live a Godly and righteous life that bears evidence of a Holy Spirit Controlled life.

Galatians 5:22-23

“But the Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”

The Way to Heaven - Are You Going?

Are you 100% sure that you will spend eternity in Heaven? You can Know for sure and here is how:

1. ) Acknowledge that you are a sinner.
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."
Romans 3:23
2.) Realize the judgement for your sin is death, eternal separation from God.
"For the wages of sin is death..." Romans 6:23a
"And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire ..." Revelation 20:15
3.) Accept God's payment for your sin.
"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
4.) Ask Jesus to come into your heart and save you.
"That if thou shalt confess thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
Romans 10:9 -10
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Romans 10:13

Friend, if you would like to be saved you can simply pray:

" Lord Jesus, I realize that I am a sinner and without you there is no other way to heaven. I therefore ask you to come into my heart and save me. Amen"
