sermonette: Growing As A First Fruit
Given 30-May-04; Sermon #669Bs; 15 minutes
Bill Cherry, focusing upon our role as first fruits, suggests that we, as green, immature fruit, must grow in order to display God's virtues to the world. We must intensely desire the Word of God as our daily food. We must use self-control when we are tempted to yield to pleasure, diligently controlling the lusts or appetites of the flesh. We must serve as good examples, responding to the civil authorities over us, walking orderly. We need to be good examples to our families and to society at large so that we do not bring reproach on God's family name.
