Members of organizations claim to be making a difference, a positive impact on society, but maybe they themselves may not actually do anything. Someone may claim to be a good Christian, to be an active member of their church, to maintain their faith when times are difficult, but privately they may turn away from God. They do not give to charity, they do not pray or ask for forgiveness, they become the epitome of hypocrisy.

Jesus challenges to BE the fruit of the sprit.  
When Jesus approached a fig tree, which appeared to bear fruit, however did not upon further examination, he cursed it. The next day, the fig tree was dying.

Do not try to boast to your friends of your Christian values, as if you are superior to those without them.

But the fruit of the sprit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Do not appear to be the fruit of the spirit, rather BE the fruit of the spirit.
