“Religion that Grows on Trees.”  by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

How would you describe a peach tree?

How would we know a real Christian?

1. “Their Goodness?”

2. “Their Dress?”

3. “Their Bumper Sticker?” 

4. “Their Giving?”

5. “Their Words?”

6. “Family Roots?”

He or she is not a Christian. Christians don’t:

Christians don’t dress like that. Christians don’t act like that. Christians don’t talk like that. Christians eat and drink like that. Christians aren’t supposed to do that. If that’s a Christian I don’t want to be one.”

Matthew 7:1-5 Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

Christian success is measured in fruit.

Matthew 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

Fruit of righteousness.

Luke 6:44 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.

Philip. 1:11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

Romans 6:16-17 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?  But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

Romans 6:21- 22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. [23] For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Tree of righteousness.

Let’s only judge ourselves.

Ever hear the old saying, “A nut doesn’t fall far from the tree. ”

Here is the tree.

Galatians 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

Here’s the defenition of Christian.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Now let’s sing page 327 The Old Rugged Cross
