As Christians we should not be ineffective or unproductive. Unproductive also means idle. We are to be about the Fathers business. We are to produce fruit, and that fruit is the fruit of the Spirit! We must understand that we cannot produce fruit by sitting on the sideline and twiddling our thumbs!
2 Peter 2:5-8 says, “For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self – control; and to self – control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
