“What is Your Heart Full of?”
“No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thorn bushes, or grapes from briers. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. Luke 6:43-45
Jesus was speaking to a large group of people on a mountainside. They had come from all over Judea, Jerusalem, and from the coastal region around Tyre and Sidon, to hear Him and to be healed of their diseases.
One of the lessons that He taught was that a person’s words will eventually tell you what kind of person they are. In this lesson He uses the illustration of a fruit tree. A person can tell what kind of a tree it is by the fruit it bears. If it is a GOOD tree it bears GOOD fruit NOT BAD fruit, but if it is a BAD tree it will bear BAD fruit.
Like the tree, people can tell if you are RIGHTEOUS or not by the WORDS you speak. In this illustration of the GOOD and BAD fruit trees, the fruit is the WORDS that are spoken, not what is done.
A person’s MOUTH will tell exactly what their HEART is full of. Whatever you desire or whoever you are will be made known by the WORDS that proceed from your mouth. So the BEST thing that needs to be done is to examine your HEART and see what you have stored there.
For the RIGHTEOUS, it should be full of the HOLY SPIRIT, who indwells them, and they should allow Him to garner praise for their Lord, and to be willing to use that praise as a witness to a lost and dying world. Is that what is in your HEART? Are you a RIGHTEOUS person?
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are NOT a RIGHTEOUS person, and more than likely your mouth will tell that you are NOT a RIGHTEOUS person, but you are harboring sin, and destined for an eternity in Hell, unless you come to Jesus Christ, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to God, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE, in Heaven making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and let His HOLY SPIRIT fill your HEART, and use your MOUTH for the GLORIFICATION of the LORD, and be counted as a RIGHTEOUS person. Do it NOW while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
