Am I different?

We are called to be different; to stand out from the crowd. Evangelisation 101: the best way to lead people to Jesus is by being a living witness.

When it is my turn to write my blog I often think of something that I need to work at in my own life. So I’ve thought; in what ways am I different from everyone else? Do people feel a desire to know Jesus when they meet me?

Hard question. I may never know.

But…

Just so, every good tree bears good fruit, and a rotten tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a rotten tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. So by their fruits you will know them. Matthew 7:17-20

The fruits of the Holy Spirit are charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness, modesty, self-control, and chastity. (See CCC 1832)

So, what if these fruits aren’t completely or always evident in my life? If these fruits are graces given freely by the Holy Spirit, maybe I haven’t allowed His grace to fully work in my life?

Are the fruits if the Holy Spirit visible in my life? If not, why? I’m going to talk to the Lord about it.

Have a blessed day everyone!
