In teaching about life, Jesus said that a tree (us) is known by its fruit,
… in other words, it is all about the fruit that we have in our lives.
Then He continued saying …
But I say to you that for every idle word (rhema) men may speak,
they will give account of it in the day of judgement.
For by your words you will be justified,
and by your words you will be condemned.”
Matt 12 36-37
That is serious, because we have all spoken idle words!
However, Jesus used the word ‘RHEMA’,
… a word from God as He explained in John 15 7-8 …
If you abide in Me, and My words (rhema) abide in you,
you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
John 15 7
In other ‘words‘,
… His Word that He reveals or speaks to us
… for our lives and for our future!
So, if we hear but do not act upon those words
… that were intended to impact our lives positively,
those words and instructions are idle,
… words in our lives that we are responsible for!
So, what should we do?
… LIVE John 15 7 by acting on His words, His rhema!
And John 15 8 will become real in our lives…
By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit
John 15 8
For then you will make your way prosperous,
and then you will have good success.
Joshua 1 8
