Matthew 7:13-19
13 “You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose the easy way. 14 But the gateway to life is small, and the road is narrow, and only a few ever find it. 15 “Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep, but are really wolves that will tear you apart. 16 You can detect them by the way they act, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit. You don’t pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles. 17 A healthy tree produces good fruit, and an unhealthy tree produces bad fruit. 18 A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit. 19 So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire. 20 Yes, the way to identify a tree or a person is by the kind of fruit that is produced.”

What a person believes is displayed in their behavior. What you do cannot be separated from what you believe.  So those who walk in the Kingdom of God, do His will because they believe in Him.  Those who say they believe in Christ but do not walk in the Kingdom of God, do not believe His truth. The Kingdom of God is any place that His will is done.  The fruit that we grow cannot be separated from what we believe.  If we believe in Christ and are baptized into His family, we will grow the fruit of the Spirit as stated in Galatians 5:22, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control…”  Being in God’s family and believing in Him, will produce this fruit.  But we need to be in obedience to His will and that takes practice.  We must practice obedience to produce good fruit.  Those who do not walk in the Kingdom of God will not produce good fruit.  They may look good on the outside, but what they believe will show in how they live.  Are you living in the Kingdom of God by living in obedience to His Word?  Your life will show what you believe. Walk in His Kingdom, under His direction, through His power and you will glorify your Lord.

Have a God Day!
