Running with Jesus 2015


Luke 6:43-45 “You don’t get wormy apples off a healthy tree, nor good apples off a diseased tree. The health of the apple tells the health of the tree. You must begin with your own life-giving lives. It’s who you are, not what you say and do, that counts. Your true being brims over into true words and deeds.


     Well here you have it "you don't get wormy apples off a healthy tree.” Here Jesus was teaching us runners how to live a true life of a runner. Mans original heart is desperately wicked, the Bible teaches us a life that is not pleasing to God and you might say is a wormy apple tree,  However,  A regenerated heart is filled with the Spirit of God and will be lived and from a healthy tree. The actions that are born in our hearts come forth in our actions and words reveal the type of tree that they come from.

     As born again Christian runners, Christ taught us that our actions and words reveal who we are.  Gill's exposition of The Bible says " good trees, are called trees of righteousness, which being planted by the river of the love of God, and rooted in Christ, and filled with the fruits of righteousness by him, do not bring forth the evil fruit of sin, as the common and constant course of their lives and conversations; for that they never commit sin, or are entirely without it, cannot be said; but sin is not their usual and common practice, or they do not live in sin: and the latter, hypocrites, who pretend to a great deal of religion, and have none that is true and real, these are comparable to corrupt trees; which, though they may make a fair show, yet do not bring forth good fruit, or perform works of righteousness which are truly such; what they do have only the appearance of good works, and are not properly so;"

     In dealing with judging Jesus continues to make us focus more on our own actions and how we are to live. So let's run as close to Jesus as we can so we will learn as much as we can to live a pure life. Bet you don't hear Him cursing, running people down. Jesus has a pure loving heart and I have always heard you become who you run with! Let's choose Jesus and don't become a wormy apple! No one will touch a wormy apple they throw them away!


Let's pray this scripture today ( My verses I pray before I teach.)

Psalm 51:10-13 NIV " Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. Then I will teach transgressors your ways, so that sinners will turn back to you.


Let's check our foundations in the morning!
