John 15 ~ Galatians 5:22-23 - Isaiah 55:7 ~ Micah 7:18
Becoming like Christ is a long, slow process of growth.
Men may not know how fruits grow, but they do know that they cannot grow in five minutes. Some lives have not even a stalk on which fruits could hang, even if they did grow in five minutes. Some have never planted one sound seed of Joy in all their lives; and others who may have planted a germ or two have lived so little in sunshine that they never could come to maturity.
