Read more of my short devotions on this blog or on Pinterest.

“So, my brothers and sisters, you also died to the law through the body of Christ, that you might belong to another, to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God.” Romans 7:4

We produce fruit for God, not as a result of keeping the law, but because we belong to God. Our efforts to uphold the law were fruitless, but now we belong to God. His life flows through us, like the sap in a vine. Fruit comes, not from our efforts but by surrendering to God’s work in our life.
