Where is Your Fruit

Where is Your Fruit

Romans 6:20 states that, in our life before salvation, we were slaves to sin. Verse 21 asks what kind of fruit we had then, and also pronounces that the end of those things was death. The fruit our lives produced then was the works of the flesh, and Paul states in Romans 7:5 “For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.” But that was our old life, our old man. In chapter 6, Paul reminds us that the old man is dead and we have been raised in newness of life. Verse 22 tells us that in this new life: 1. We are freed from sin, 2. We are servants of God, 3. We produce fruits unto holiness, and 4. Our end will be life everlasting and not death. Most people are on board with the doctrine of everlasting life, but they want to continue in their service to sin.

Carlos #1: Carlos is a plumber who came by the house to modify some of the pipes so we could install a dishwasher. When he had finished his work, he and I talked for close to an hour. I gave him a tract and explained the purpose of our move to Argentina.
