Root and Fruit
What does the church want from me? That’s a great question. Our desire is for each person to fulfill their God-given purpose. In Christian lingo we call this “bearing fruit”. The goal is being fruitful. But, there is a process. The root is crucial to the fruit. Without a solid root system, the fruit will not happen. This is not just an agriculture reality, this is the truth of our lives. If you want to “fruit” you have to “root”. What does my church expect from me? The expectation is to become a part of the roots. The roots will lead to the fruit.
