Who is Doing the Work?

download (6)“There is a difference between “fruit” and “results.” You can get “results” by following surefire formulas, manipulating people, or turning on your charisma; but “fruit” comes from life.  Results are counted and soon become silent statistics, but living fruit remains and continues to multiply to the glory of God ( John 15:16)”  Warren Wiersbe, On Being a Servant of God
 
My friend Mike Wells used to say that when you walk through an apple orchard you don’t hear the apple trees grunting and groaning with all the effort of producing their fruit, but if you went to a factory making plastic apples it would be full of noise and smells…watch out for people claiming to work for God who are noisy and smelly.
