When we live a life grounded in Christ, good fruit is born from our lives. Life is developed from a source; it cannot be manufactured. Fruit is not made; it grows as the requirement of life principle.
Apparently, we all want to live a good life, and we all want to make a difference in our spheres of influence. But the fundamental question is that: how do you do that? Do you produce good fruits or bad fruits?
Fruits are meant to blossom and the principle of fruit bearing is literally a life principle. Fruit bearing is as a result of abiding in Christ. Therefore, bearing fruit glorifies God. It makes you a disciple of Christ and it helps you to grow spiritually.
In life, slow and steady wins the race. So, here are the few tips on how to bear good fruits:
First, do whatever has been placed before you with perseverance and faithfulness. Perseverance gives the urge to continue trying to do something though we are not sure of the success. It keeps giving the hope that there is a happy ending. The rule of perseverance says NEVER GIVE UP. However, do it with all diligence.

Also, you need to exercise faith in little things. Faith is the assurance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. You need to walk in faith. It is like a muscle because it strengthens you.
Likewise, you must be teachable. Learn from others; “no one is an island.” Therefore, you need to tap from other’s knowledge.
In addition, be a blessing to others who are in need. You need to sow your life into those around you. Serve others; it is a blessing.
Lastly, you must be ready to step into new opportunities that stretch you. Don’t be afraid to get out of your comfort zone. Try new things and expect challenges along the way.
The deeper you go in a relationship with God, the more he can widen your sphere of influence. Fruit is often used to describe person’s outward actions that result from the condition of the heart.
