“And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.”
Eternal fruits are those that have eternal value because they transcend this present world. When we leave this world, only eternal fruits will cross into eternity with us. But what does it mean to gather eternal fruits or how does one gather eternal fruits? Our opening text shows us this.
When we participate with God to reap the harvest, we are gathering or bearing eternal fruits. When we win souls, we are gathering fruits unto eternal life. Also, when we give towards Kingdom expansion, we are gathering fruits unto eternal life (Philippians 4:17).
In other words, anything that we do that leads to the harvest of souls and the propagation of the Gospel, causes us to bear eternal fruits. So, do not just be focused on bearing earthly fruits that will pass away with the earth. Most importantly, focus on gathering fruits unto eternal life, for which you will have a reward in the world to come (Daniel 12:3).

Timor’s traumatic birth left deep scars. The vindictive destruction and forcible removal of many Timorese, by the departing Indonesian military and its Timorese militia allies, left a legacy of hatred and trauma that will take decades to heal. There is still so much unrest and violence despite the presence of peacekeepers in the nation.
Y: We are praying for peace in this nation.
