(J. C. Philpot, "Meditations on 1 Peter")
"Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or
make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a
tree is recognized by its fruit." Matthew 12:33
Gospel fruit can only grow upon a gospel tree,
and thus the fruits of a holy and godly life must
spring out of the divine operations of the Holy
Spirit upon the heart.
