Known by His Fruit


Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
Matthew 12:33 KJV
           ~~~~~~~~~~~
To know a man just watch his words and deeds,
For he can't hide the nature of his heart.
An evil sort's revealed by his misdeeds;
A poisoned well its harm will sure impart.
A fruit will show what kind of tree it's from;
You cannot harvest olives from the ground.
Guitarists bare their talent when they thrum,
And you can tell a good one from his sound.
True Christians will exhibit Christ within;
The body of their works His presence shows.
They cannot be successful in their sin;
The essence of His truth and love still flows.
           The blind can tell a fruit by taste and feel.
          See Jesus with His works in you reveal.
           ~~~~~~~~~~~

REMEMBER: Jesus lives within you. Get out of the way so He can live through you.
