Seven Benefits of Sharing Your Faith, Part 4 of 7

The fourth benefit of relaying your faith is the wisdom you will acquire and the significant changes you will cause in this world. Concerning this truth, the Bible states, "The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he that wins souls is wise" (Proverbs 11:30, NKJV). Fruit is that which comes forth out of your life. Jesus taught that the kind of fruit will be known. He said, "Every tree will be known by its fruit" Matthew 7:20. When you share your faith, you are demonstrating that you are a tree of life. You are bringing hope and the message of eternal life to a world that is hopeless and dark.

 The fruit of evangelism is a major player in the solution to the moral and social breakdown of society. Laws do not stop political corruption or immoral behavior. Corruption is found even in the highest levels of our government. The breakdown of the family and unfaithfulness in marriage continues at an alarming rate. The best students are found cheating on exams. There are many symptoms of moral and social ruin around us such as athletic scandals, the crime rate goes up as the age of criminals goes down, gambling and gambling addiction, drug addiction, pornography, and child abuse to name a few. What is even worse is that these things have ceased to shock us.

The Christian faith is the only deterrent to these evils. It is the only true and lasting answer. Chuck Colson of Prison Fellowship sees crime ultimately being a moral problem and the only solution is moral reformation. But how is moral reformation to be accomplished? It only changes when lives are changed with the gospel. The gospel can only change lives when it is lived in a life "the fruit of the righteous" and when the message of Christ is shared "winning souls." Make a commitment today to be a sharing believe. Why not ask the Lord Jesus today to give you an opportunity to be a tree of life to someone this week?

:Not like other ancient culrtues, foods was normally plentiful in ancient Egypt. The Egyptians relied on the yearly flooding of the Nile to produce fertile lands that yielded crops that fed the masses. Scenes of animal husbandry and butchery, were a fixture on the walls of Egyptian tombs. No much less unusual, are scenes of fishing and fishermen along with images and hieroglyphs about the preparation of fish for eating, and pictures of birds and foul staying plucked and preserved.
