When John the Baptist came on the scene, he emphatically said he was just a voice...a witness to the light. John chastised the Pharisees and the Sadducees. Legalism still exists; Liberalism still exists: Neither are the Light! John said repent--turn from YOUR ways--produce fruitS worthy of that turning. That spoke to me too of unique-ness as well.
When we turn from the choices we make, there will be different fruits (plural). My fruit will be different than yours; yours will be different from your spouse. John even gave different groups, different instructions. He told the people to share what they had. He told the tax collectors not to take more than necessary. He told the soldiers not to be violent or false accusers--and to be content.
Fruits of repentance always emanate a certain aroma and flavor. Galatians reveals to us the nature of His Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness and self-control. Let's share our witness of Him and spread His sweetness around!
