Spiritual Auto-Pilot

The comment has been made recently that "some Lutherans think that good works are something that 'just happen' on some sort of a spiritual auto-pilot."

What part of fruit do such people not understand?

For some reason, Jesus called good works the fruit of faith. Last I checked on my grape vines or my blackberry canes, the fruit-bearing actually was on auto-pilot. I suspect Jesus knew that when he used the term "fruit."

(Dan at Necessary Roughness brought up the topic and a little discussion ensued.)

  1. Susan, thanks for the link and the illustration. I think Pr. Juhl should have shown his work, but he may have the best answer. :)
