A Lifestyle of Fruitfulness
Revelation 22:2 NLT
It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations.

We sometimes struggle with consistency.
Revelation 22:2 is an illustration of the river of God which is the Holy Spirit who is in us. the Bible says that we are the trees planted by the streams of water which means we are suppose to produce fruit.
The Holy Spirit is not expecting us to produce seasonal fruit. Jesus cursed the fig tree even when He knew it was not the season for it to bear fruit.
As believers we don’t have an option but to bear fruit all the time.
Matthew 3:10 says – Even now the axe is laid to the root of the trees. Every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
The Bible says that rivers of living water will flow through everybody who believes in Jesus. This is the capacity of the Holy Spirit that He will help you bear fruit in all the seasons.
Fruitfulness doesn’t mean results. Fruits are your actions as to how you behave but results are the things that happens after what you do.
Noah preached the gospel for 40 years without seeing any results but he was still fruitful.
Fruitfulness is beyond results. It has to become your lifestyle. You have to pursue bearing fruit every single day.
Today pray and ask God as to how you can bear fruit for Him today and believe that God is coming with you today to help you bear fruit in whatever you do.
