Ust as trees bear their fruit, so repentance is known by good works. If you have repented and accepted Jesus it will be evident by the way
you live, talk and do things The Bible says; “By their fruit we shall know them”. Mathew 7:16.
PROGRESSION OF EVENTS:
A. John the Baptist told the people to produce fruit of repentance(that is they should show by their ways that they have repented from their
sins and are changed people).
If you have received Jesus as Saviour, He wants you to bear fruit in your life.
B. What is fruit? (Let the children respond).
Fruit is sweat and fleshy product of tree or plant that has a seed that can be eaten as food.
C. To bear fruit of repentance is to begin to do good things instead of bad things you do before, to begin to let the light of God shine in you and by telling. This means that it is not enough to say I am a Christian or I go to church or I am a pastor’s child but you must behave as a child of God.
D. Abraham’s children are those who truly believe in Jesus. (Rom 2:28-29)
To bear fruit of Repentance you must:-
•Admit your sins.
•Believe Jesus died for your sins, was buried and rose the third day.
•Choose Him as your Saviour and live for His glory.
Even now the axe is laid to the root of the tree. Every tree that does not bear fruit shall be cut down. Accept Jesus and tell others about Christ and keep living as a child of God.
