Is bearing fruit possible for me as a kid?
Here's the answer:
Yes, you can bear fruit for Jesus as a kid.
Bearing fruit is very important for believers. The fruit we are talking about is not physical fruit you eat, such as apples, bananas, or oranges. The fruit the Bible talks about is the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). As you grow in your walk with Christ, you will bear more and more fruit for Him.
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. These things can be hard to cultivate on your own. That’s why we need Jesus’ help to cultivate this fruit in our lives. Even as a kid, you can start bearing fruit for Christ. You can bear fruit by helping others, being kind, and obeying the Bible.
Bearing fruit will take time. Just as a fruit tree takes time to bear fruit, it will take time for you to bear fruit. You will bear fruit by staying true to God and following Him. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t automatically see fruit in your life. It will take time, but it is worth it!
"Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young. Set an example for the believers in what you say and in how you live. Also set an example in how you love and in what you believe. Show the believers how to be pure" (1 Timothy 4:12).
"Remain joined to me, just as I also remain joined to you. No branch can bear fruit by itself. It must remain joined to the vine. In the same way, you can’t bear fruit unless you remain joined to me" (John 15:4).
"So I say, live by the Holy Spirit’s power. Then you will not do what your desires controlled by sin want you to do" (Galatians 5:16).
