The Virtuous Woman
Christian Words and Christian Actions Truth
You Shall Know Them by Their Fruits Meaning
I'm so proud of you for your enthusiasm to become more virtuous for
your beloved Jesus, and as we uncover more and more mysteries of
Truth together, I have to ask, can you feel your values changing?
Have you started to replace old habits with new ones? And how do you
feel inside ... Do you feel like a better person for it?
All those positive results are the fruits of your hands! You decided to improve yourself. You decided to commit to the challenge of this Biblical Fruits are Christian Deeds program. You decided to stick with it, even though you may have experienced obstacles of many kinds along the way, from time constraints to illness to difference of opinion about something in the program to peer pressure, etc., etc., etc. No doubt, dozens of things have nudged you and said, "Ohhhhh, just give it up already." But here you are, devoted to your cause, and you have already been rewarded with better values, new habits and an overall better feeling of well being about yourself. Those are the fruits of your hands and those rewards will continue to grow, as long as you choose to continue on a virtuous path.
Biblical Fruits Point of Interest ... Go back over the last paragraph and count how many times the word you and variances of the word you there are. The message is crystal clear. It is truly up to you.
Where's the Love?
Lots of people are proud of their Christian Deeds, but their heart isn't in them. They do them but not willingly. If you do things (works) for the Lord out of some sort of obligation, or for recognition, it's much different than if you do them out of Love for the Lord.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall
enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he that doeth the Will of my
Father which is in Heaven.
I'm sure you've heard the phrase, Talk is cheap. And it's true. Biblical Fruits are worthless in fact without action in one form or another. A man's (or woman's) word means nothing until it has been fulfilled. A woman can talk about her virtues 'til she's blue in the face, but unless she practices what she preaches, her words are empty. There's no fooling God.

You Shall Know Them by Their Fruits Bible Quote
But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have
rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that
shall he also reap.
Christian Deeds are a choice that's up to you. God gives you the choice
to make your own decisions. It's never too late to begin. Every day
is a new day ... A fresh start. Every moment is a new moment. No
matter what, you aren't a hopeless cause. Read the New Testament.
Get to know the character of Jesus' Apostles at the beginning of
their walk with Christ. They weren't a group of virtue filled fellas
right from the get go. It took time. It took faith. One Christian
songwriter describes them as "a band of unschooled ruffians and a few
old fishermen." Some of the un-virtues they possessed were doubt,
fear, pride, jealousy ... Paul even described himself this way:
1 Timothy 1:15
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ
Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
Christian Words / Christian Actions Concern
You Shall Know Them by Their Fruits Purpose
Peter, the rock upon whom Jesus said He would build His church, had
so much cowardice at one point that he denied emphatically to some
gals at a campfire that he had ever even known Jesus ... Yet, these
were His Apostles! Jesus knew that they would need and depend on the
Holy Spirit after He left. Don't believe that He can't change your
life. Remember, if you're not asking for something that seems
impossible ... You're not asking for enough. You may think that
you've done some unforgivable things in your life and there's no way
you could ever make up for them, but that's exactly the reason why
our Lord died for us. That is the Grace of God. There is one
string attached ... You have to be genuinely sorry for what you did
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God ...
2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves,
and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then
will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal
28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto
the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall
29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath
never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.
2 Peter 2:20-22
20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the
world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,
they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is
worse with them than the beginning.
21 For it had been better for them not to have known the
way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from
the Holy commandment delivered unto them.
22 But it is happened unto them according to the true
proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that
was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
4 For it is impossible for those who were once
enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made
partakers of the Holy Ghost,
5 And have tasted the good Word of God, and the powers of
the world to come,
6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto
repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh,
and put Him to an open shame.
Christian Words - Christian Actions Warning
You Shall Know Them by Their Fruits Caution
Biblical Fruits are Christian Deeds Danger - Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is a very sensitive issue. There are so many people who believe that they've ruined the hope of their salvation because sin in their life continues, even after they've been saved or reborn. Nothing could be further from the Truth. Remember, sin is sin because you know that you are doing something wrong.
Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it
If you did something that you didn't know was wrong, it wouldn't be sin. When you sin, subconsciously (or maybe even consciously sometimes) you're saying, I know this is wrong, and I'm gonna do it anyway. Yes, it's ugly and shameful and you downright hate to admit it, but it's the Truth.
Somehow, we don't want our sins to be "bad" sins ... We feel like we can live within our own skin more comfortably if we think that we only tell "white" lies. Friend, there's no such thing. Sin is sin. It's all bad. If you look at sin in general, you could probably say that the majority of sins are repeat offenses. Unfortunately, when you're saved, or reborn, sin doesn't magically disappear from life.
Biblical Fruits are Christian Deeds Food for Thought ... You don't become perfect. But your attitude, and your determination to avoid and resist and reject temptation is what changes. You still have the sin "gene" from our earthly ancestors Adam and Eve, but when you're reborn in the spirit, you decide to manage your "inherent gene" differently. Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is when you forsake Him and never return.
That is the only unforgivable sin.
Everyone sins, and I'll tell you one of my favorite things again, Our sin can't possibly outdo God's Grace. Don't ever forget that. If you're worried that you've fallen away and blasphemed the Holy Spirit, chances are you haven't, because if you did, you wouldn't care. You certainly wouldn't be concerned about whether or not you're virtuous if you did. If you're still worried, why not try charity, as Peter suggests.

You Shall Know Them by Their Fruits Tears and Fears
1 Peter 4:8
And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for
charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
Be careful that once you change your life, and are reborn, that you do not judge others who haven't found Truth yet ... Or even still, those who know Truth, but haven't decided yet to dedicate their lives to it.
... Is a word you may say to yourself after reading that last sentence ... Because once we see the light, we feel so compelled to help others, and sometimes even over-help those who have yet to see the light that we've seen, or have only seen a glimmer. But let me ask you a question. Let's just say, for the sake of example, that when you found Jesus and opened your heart to the Truth, you were 37 years old. When you were 28, chances are you knew who Jesus was ... In fact, you probably knew quite a bit about Him, and if you didn't, you had the opportunity and the resources to find out.
But you just weren't ready yet. You chose not to find out. And perhaps you can look back and find reasons why you didn't accept and choose Christianity as your walk until you did. There may have been experiences you had to go through that would allow you to know something first hand in order to help another struggling soul that will go through the same thing in the future. There may have been so much worldly influence with a stronghold on you, that you couldn't have devoted your life without doubting that you did the right thing, or that you were missing something greener back on the other side of the fence.
My Biblical Fruits question to you is this ... Isn't it the epitome of hypocrisy to judge another for not choosing to be reborn when we are ready for them to be? Do not they get to choose their own time, as we did? Was smoking cigarettes A-okay only until you quit, and then once you quit, then it became unhealthy for all mankind? How did that happen?
Yes, it is our duty and desire to spread the Word of God. Yes, it is
our duty and desire to help lost souls to find their way into or back
into the flock. Yes it is our duty and desire to warn those we see
are astray. No, it is not our duty or desire to judge anyone
who doesn't do what we want, when we want it. Everyone is different.
Everyone's time is different. Everyone's emotions and circumstance
and heart is different. Don't ever forget that you were once where
they are now, and if anyone judged you for not accepting the Lord as
your Savior immediately upon invitation, it may have (and probably
did in many cases) scared you into closing your mind and heart to it
until another shepherd with more understanding and patience and mercy
came along to guide you with more tender loving care, or maybe not
even another shepherd, but just another time in your life when you
had more understanding and patience and a clearer understanding of
Those who are lost can't understand as you understand until they are
reborn and their spirit is renewed.
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily,
I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the
Kingdom of God.
But to judge them, is not what the Lord taught us.
1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and
with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's
eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the
mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own
eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy

You Shall Know Them by Their Fruits Lesson
Judgment, and warning are two different things. Once you know Truth,
it is your obligation to bring the light to others and blow
the trumpet ... Without judgment.
I must accentuate this once more because it is so important, it is
our duty to warn, but not to judge, and it is often a very difficult
operation to present warning to lost sheep without sounding
judgmental. Pray about it and don't be afraid to tell a sheep that
you are warning and not judging, and remind them that you were once
lost too. They will trust you more for it.
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye
therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
God loves all of His children. He wants everyone to have the
chance to renew their lives and not be lost sheep anymore.

Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in
the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and
live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways ...
Help bring the lost back to His flock. He is depending on you. You
are His watchman.
Ezekiel 33:6, 8-9
6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the
trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take
any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his
blood will I require at the watchman's hand.
8 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt
surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way,
that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I
require at thine hand.
9 Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn
from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his
iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.
