Fruity Pebbles


"Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of scoffers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like the tree planted by the streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers" (Psa.1:1-3).

In 1971 Post Cereals produced a cereal which it named Fruity Pebbles, based upon the TV series The Flintstones. They thought it might be just a fad product, but it is still a big seller. I guess that if Peter tell us we are "living stones," (1 Pet.2:5) and the Psalmist says that we "yield fruit in season," that might make us fruity pebbles...People of faith ought to become firmly rooted and grounded in the Word of God and its message of love. We have the privilege of standing on God's promises, and reaching with our roots deeper and deeper into His Word. One of the true blessings that follows this process is fruit-bearing. With leaves that do not wither, we are called upon to bear fruit in every season. This fruit may be the qualities of the Spirit that Paul recounts in Gal.5:22. It may also be the fruit of Christian growth and maturity. It may also be speaking about bringing others to the Lord through our positive example. The further our roots reach into the truth of God's Word, the more likely we are to bear fruit. We will not be dependent upon a particular season to engender the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. As we grow in Christ those will become a part of our persona. As we draw closer to Him, the Cornerstone, "you, also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house" (1 Pet.1:5). As we live in God's season, we can experience the Fruit of the Spirit at all times, no matter what the forecast around us says...True living stones that bear the Fruit of the Spirit....Fruity Pebbles....

Have a great start to your week....Begin it with a RAK or two... Love mark Phil.4:11
