10 Men came to the Forge at Grits and Greens in Lowell for some spiritual fulfillment on Holy week.  This week we concentrated on FRUITFULNESS.

Definition

Producing good fruit, Producing good or helpful results.

Old Testament.

Proverbs 11:30

1 Kings 3:16-28

Proverbs is a book written by Soloman to his people. Here is an example of how baring good fruit will live forever. Being fruitful is a wise.

1 Kings 3:16-28 is an example of Soloman showing us his wise judgement given to him by God. Soloman was trying to do what he could to be fair and honest with the people.

New Testament

Galations 5:16-26

Galations is a letter written by Paul to deal with the relationship between Christian jews and Christian gentiles. The Galations were starting to manipulate the Christian faith. In Galations, Paul tells us how to live in the faith and be fruitful. Christians need to unit in Christ.

We had a great discussion. As always we discussed many ways fruitfulness has affected us all, some negative and some positive. Sometimes you will see the fruit and sometimes you will not. Do not be discouraged if you do not see the fruit of some hard prayer or witnessing to/for others. The main outcome we came to is that fruitfulness needs to happen organically, the way God intended. Not by, trying to hard or by ignoring when the opportunity arises.  Live your life the way God has shown you, the fruit will come.

God bless you men.
