so that you may live in a manner worthy of the Lord, ⌊to please him in all respects⌋, bearing fruit in every good deed and increasing in the knowledge of God,
. I was reading Colossians, and it got me thinking.
Faith without works is dead. On the same token, Knowledge without fruit is hollow. But how can one have works? Or fruit? It’s the Holy Spirit that causes us to do good works and bear fruit resembling Christ! If we don’t have these things but only have head knowledge, how do we know the Holy Spirit is working in our lives? (Im not talking about tongues here) the evidence is the fruit we bear – only caused by the spirit of God working in our lives. We’re prone to sin, so when we do something that glorifies God, what a miracle! It’s Gods miracle, think about it.
