Proven Genuineness

7 These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. (1:Peter 1:7 NIV)

How do we prove the genuineness of our faith. It’s pretty simple really; fruit. What does our faith produce?

This is where others will point to the religious and call us hypocrites. When the fruit of our faith is not in line with our actions. Our faith should produce actions that bear good fruit. We should be defined by the positive we wrought in this life, in significance, more than through our success.
