It’s worth it
“…having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.” - PHILIPPIANS 1:11
In Hawaii, they serve a juice called POG. It’s a mixture of pineapple juice, orange juice, and guava. They squeeze these three fruits together – and the result is delicious. When we begin to make excellent choices, and we have the love of Christ within us, what comes out of our life, the juice of our life, is the fruit of the Spirit that Paul writes about in Galatians.
Whatever you’re going through, and in spite of the stress of circumstances – you can be confident that what God is producing in your life is worthwhile. Depend on Him, be patient with the process, and you will say, “the juice is worth the squeeze.”
