Will He find fruit?

If Jesus visits you today, will He find fruit on you?

Joh 15:1-6  “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you.  Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If Jesus visits you today, will He find fruit on your branch?

The fruit that Jesus wants to find in each person, is the fruit of the Spirit and that we find in Gal 5:22-23

Gal 5:22-23  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. These things are the fruit that Jesus wants us to have in our lives.

Now you might say that you give and that shows loves. Or you might say that you have self control because you can control yourself in some areas of your life. But then we read scripture of Gal 5:16-21

Gal 5:16-21  But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 

I read something in 2016 that said:

Dead works can even include worship, tithing, and deeds of kindness. Worship must be in spirit and truth or it is a dead work. Giving out of constraint, emotionalism, or because you are embarrassed to have the offering plate pass in front of you is a dead work. Deeds of kindness or ministry done out of obligation or to receive glory are also dead works. Any work which has no capacity to be made alive by the Spirit of God, is a dead work.

For example: Giving to the poor because you want to gain merit with God or because you want to receive or because you feel emotional about seeing someone begging for food. Giving to someone for these reasons, are dead works. When is it not dead works? When the Spirit of God have prompted you to do it. When you know for a fact, that God asked you to give money, food or clothes to the person or persons you have visited, seen begging or know off.

When Jesus visits you to find fruit, he wants to find fruit that is genuine. Love because you really love, not because you want to receive something back in return. That is from the flesh and called idolatry. You want more so you give.

Evaluate yourself today. Look at the things you do.
Are they because you expect something in return?

Look at the motives behind you deeds.

Do you really have self control, if you shows daily signs of being impatient?

If you really want to change, ask Jesus Christ to come into your life and help you.

As Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior. The One guiding you with His Holy Spirit.

Neurons and growth factors

Hello. If you would rather like to listen to this article, follow the link:

https://anchor.fm/trainersperspective/episodes/Neurons-and-growth-factors-etfh25

This week I learned that when you exercise, your body creates a growth factor called BRAINDERIVED NEUROTROPHIC FACTOR or in short, BDNF. This growth factor then moves to your brain and in the brain, it creates new neurons. Neurons in your brain are responsible for brain health. This means that it helps for the possible prevention of dementia, Alzheimer’s, and neurons are also responsible for sending messages to different parts of your body. In other words, they use electrical impulses and chemical signals to transmit information between different areas of the brain, and between the brain and the rest of the nervous system, according to the National Institution of Neurological Disorders and stroke. 

Isn’t it wonderful how our bodies were created by God? How God brought everything into consideration when He has created us. 

Gen 1:26-27 says: And God said, “Let us make humankind in our image and according to our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of heaven, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every moving thing that moves upon the earth.” So God created humankind in his image, in the likeness of God he created him, male and female he created them. 

Psa 139:14  I praise you, because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works, and my soul knows it well. 

We are wonderfully made. Wonderful is God’s works. There is no denying the fact that God exists. It just comes down to the fact whether we acknowledge Him and accept Him in our lives. But just looking at how our bodies were made, no human-made another one. No human makes a new baby in a woman’s womb. Two opposite-sex partners have sex and then the sperm of the male travels to the egg in the female. These two meet and an embryo are formed which is life. A new life that forms into a baby human. God is the potter, we are the clay. He forms that embryo and then He forms it into a baby. He also has the might to either let the woman become pregnant or not. 

God makes us wonderfully. Just looking at how important movement is which creates new growth factors, move to the brain and create new neurons for us to have brain health. How wonderful is that! No human thought about it or created it. How wonderful, Father God.
