The Fruit Of The Righteous Is A Tree Of Life

 

Fruit is what grows on the branches of the vine. Who is the vine? Who are the branches? Look at what Solomon said about fruit. The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise” (Proverbs 11:30 NKJV). There are two phrases in this verse and at first glance they don’t appear connected. Let’s see. The righteous bear fruit. “For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.” (Romans 5:17 NKJV). Believers are the righteous. Therefore, the fruit of righteousness is a tree of life. Jesus is the tree of life. The fruit of the righteous is to show people Jesus. If you want to win souls, then they have to believe in Jesus. In that way, you are a tree of life to lost souls. You are the one who shares the grace of Jesus with a lost world. Fruit is a result of abiding in the vine. The fruit which grows from your relationship with Jesus results in a tree of life to the world.
