Fruit With Purpose

Romans 7:4 - "Therefore, my brethren, you also were made to die to the Law through the body of Christ, so that you might be joined to another, to Him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God."

The angst of youth is often misunderstanding our purpose on earth. This is often carried over into adulthood with many living futile, nihilistic existences until the day of their death. If we are not living for a greater purpose, life is absurd at best without any meaning. Therefore, the logic of Paul's simple statement regarding bearing fruit for God as the main premise of life is simple yet profound.

Bearing fruit – not for ourselves but for God and others is the only thing that will truly satisfy the vacuum in our hearts. Giving is fundamental to man's nature because it is fundamental to God's. Once we understand that living for the Lord is the key to peace and happiness, then we will be finally able to let go of anger and embrace the peace of Christ.
