Ultimately the fruit in your life will be produced by the spirit inside you. Press into the Lord, ABIDE in Him and HE will work IN and THROUGH you to produce SUPERNATURAL FRUIT through you. You will experience God and you will become more like Christ. The more you press into the Lord, like a cookie cutter, the more all the other garbage will be removed like excess dough as you become more and more like the image of Christ. As you go about this process, disciple OTHERS to do the same and if you are appointed as an elder... BE
