How to produce lasting, sustaining and eternal fruit.

God has called us to bear fruit.
John 15:16 New King James Version
16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.
The reality is everyone is producing some type of fruit. However, what you produce can either be positive or negative, good or bad, hope or evil. What you do or not do means something.
Galatians 5:19-23 New Living Translation19 When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, 21 envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
The question is not if you produce, rather what type of fruit are your producing? God wants us to carry the fruits of righteousness. The type of fruit you produce is indicative of what was planted and cultivated.
Matthew 7:15-20 New Living Translation
The Tree and Its Fruit
15 “Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves.
16 You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?
17 A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit.
18 A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit.
19 So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire.
20 Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions.
To produce means to cause to make, manufacture, birth and bring something forth. A producer is a person, company that makes, grows, supplies good and commodities for sale.
For the kingdom’s sake, a producer is someone who cultivates, stewards, maintains and grows the resources that God has placed into their care.
Ten signs you are a healthy producer
2. You must commit to following the steps that God puts you in. Many Christians make the mistake of hearing God’s plan and attempt to make their own way.
Psalm 37:23 King James Version23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.
3. You must commit to being diligent. Diligence is careful consistent work, and effort.
4. You must commit to being a student.
5. Your circle, who has your ear is very important.
6. You must commit to persevere. It won’t be easy. To persevere means to do something despite difficult or delay in achieving success.
7. Heal. Commit to your healing. You will never be able to produce lasting fruit if you don’t commit to being healed.
I pray you receive this word.My hope is that you know God’s great love for you.Ephesians 3:18-20 New King James Version18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
