Within the bowl of fruit something unusual is
taking place. The rotten fruit is not
infecting the other pieces of fruit. In fact, just the opposite is taking
place. The healthy fruit is beginning to
transform the rotten fruit.
In a natural way of thinking the influence of
one rotten piece of fruit can infect the rest of the fruit in the bowl. You have allowed natural thinking to cause
you to believe just the opposite of how the Kingdom of God works. While the Word does say a little leaven will
affect a loaf of forming bread dough that illustration has to do with negative influences.
The power you are not realizing is the
reversing power of God’s presence in the life of a believer. You want to rescue someone you love because
you are afraid the other rotted relationships in their life will corrupt
them. You need to trust God and the
power of His presence in the person you love.
They carry the presence of the risen Christ and with it the potential to
turn this bowl of rotted relationships into a place of health.
