“You did not choose Me, but I chose you, and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in my name, He may give you” John 15:16 NKJV
Fruitfulness is Gods desire and mandate for every living thing, both plants and animals. If God wants ordinary plants and animals to be fruitful how much more the human beings He created in His image and likeness. When we now consider the blessings and authority attached to being a child of God, this is a higher level. We are not ordinary human beings but joint heirs with Christ therefore fruitfulness is our right in Jesus. Every form of barrenness in your life is therefore destroyed in the mighty name of Jesus.
In our text our Lord Jesus Christ gave us the condition for all round fruitfulness. When we talk of all round fruitfulness we are talking of physical and spiritual fruitfulness. We must fulfil the condition Jesus gave that we should be fruitful spiritually first and then the physical fruitfulness will be automatically granted unto us.
This means soul winning gives you a blank cheque to possess all other forms of fruitfulness. It means evangelism and follow-up open the treasures of heaven for you to have abundant blessing.
Are you looking for the fruit of the womb? Jesus will give you as long as you abide in him and get actively involved in evangelism and follow up. Are you having financial barrenness? It is God that gives you power to make wealth. He is the one that will bless the works of your hands. He owns the silver, the gold and all currencies of this world. Human effort is useless without the help of God. Peter was a hardworking and expert fisher man, yet he fished all night and caught nothing until Jesus appeared on the scene. But before his breakthrough he borrowed the master his boat for evangelism. You also need to borrow Jesus your boat: there may be something the Lord is asking you to do for him, don’t hesitate because that may be the key to your breakthrough. It may be your time, energy, talent or money; as you surrender them to the Lord you will experience all round fruitfulness in Jesus name
God is not happy when His children don’t bear fruits. No wonder Jesus cursed the fig tree when he couldn’t find a single fruit on it. (Mat 21:20). He doesn’t like anyone just occupying space for nothing. He is not comfortable when his children are not active in church; you can’t afford to be a bench warmer. You must do something for God no matter how little. You need to join some groups or departments where you know you can function for God. When God comes to check your life I pray he will find you fruitful and your case will not be like the fig tree in Jesus name.
Jesus said “Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away: and every branch that bears fruit, he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.” (John 15:2).This means when you are fruitful God will assist you to become more fruitful. He will increase you to the extent that you will become an answer to people’s problems. You will begin to heal the sick and deliver the oppressed. You have so much money that you are feeding people, helping some to pay their children school fees and sponsoring church programs. This is the will of God concerning you and it shall come to pass in Jesus name.
Welcome to your season of all round fruitfulness.
God bless you.
