Someone has said (wisely) that God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts! The Gospel truth is that genuine repentance means much more than changing one’s mind or feeling sorry for one’s sins or telling God we are on His side again. Fruit-bearing is the sign of true repentance. The evidence of repentance is to be found in the fruit that is brought forth from our lives. Repentance is a positive action — something that enhances our life and the lives of others.
Time and again, and in many different ways, Jesus said, “You will recognize by their fruits the persons whose faith and trust in God’s ways brings them into His Kingdom.” You will know them, He said, by the difference this faith and trust has made in the way they live. And because their faith and trust in God has made a difference in the way they live, they are blest, they are happy.
