Low hanging fruit is easily accessible to all; to the “least of these”, the spiritually unaware and those who are unable due to life circumstances to aspire to seek and know God on their own. In order to help you understand meaning of the phrase “low hanging fruit,” just picture an image of a tree with fruit. The “low hanging” fruit is the fruit that is lowest on the tree – meaning that the fruit is easily reached by a person who is looking to grab some of the fruit. When the phrase “low hanging fruit” is used, the fruit is equivalent to rewards, and the “low hanging” means that those rewards are relatively easy to acquire when compared to the “fruit” that is higher up on the tree. So, the phrase “low hanging fruit” is used to mean the rewards that are easily acquired, for which you don’t have to work too hard to get but you still get just as much benefit from as the things that you would have had to work harder for – like the fruits that are higher up on the tree, for which you would have had to climb up higher to retrieve. The simplest definition is that “low hanging fruit” means something that is easy to access. This is exactly who Christ called us to be. Jesus, Himself became low hanging fruit for us. He emptied himself and became a slave unto man. He served us. He created easy access to the Father through His great sacrifice. This Sunday I encourage you to join us as we once again explore what it means to be a gateway Christian that sweet rewarding fruit that leads others to the great reward of knowing Jesus. I hope to see you all there!
Love you all,
