Got Good Fruit?

Alas, a Kiwano horned melon IS good for something.... making a spiritual allusion!

"You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you."
John 15:16

Plastic Fruit
Do not be deceived by "plastic fruit," produced by will-power independent of spiritual life. The human soul produces these, not the spirit. Fake fruit may look the same as the real thing, but when tested -- utterly fails the test. Real spiritual fruit stands up under the toughest test.
Real spiritual fruit is not dependent on other people and their actions, but is produced as the result of God's life within.
A quick glance at the "fruit" in someone's life can be deceptive. Fake spiritual fruit reveals itself when under pressure in the heat of trials. Real fruit tastes even better after extreme heat is applied. Plastic fruit melts and disappears.
Only as life flows through the branches, does fruit grow. Fruit does not ripen overnight, and cannot be manufactured.
