Has your life thus far seemed somewhat barren, empty, non-impacting or insignificant? You are very important to God and He can change all that. Perhaps you desire to see fruit, more fruit, and much fruit?
Want fruit? Christ-likeness is very important for every believer. God desires to use every believer in regards to His Great Commission.
I'm not talking here about some give-to-get word-faith "God-wants-us-all-wealthy-all-the-time" error. But Paul wrote this, "For even in Thessalonica you sent aid once and again for my necessities. Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account. Indeed I have all and abound. I am full, having received from Epaphroditus the things [sent] from you, a sweet-smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God. And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." 4/16-19phil.
"Not that I seek" money. No, Paul really wasn't greedy and out on the take. He wasn't livin' for what he could get for himself post conversion. And we should be like that either.
These words on givin' and fruit are in there - in the Book. Listen friend, I can't just cut these words out of the Bible for anyone.
"For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously.." 1/10col.
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.." 5/22gal.
Listen, no matter how bummed-out you might feel at times, or how desperate your circumstances might look, the one thing that you can always count on is the Lord's unfailing Love for you. Let nothing distract you away from Jesus. The Vine will be true to His branches and vineyard. If you'll be in the Word as a loving, caring Christian, you'll abide bearing fruit. Jesus'll walk and talk with you - guiding. He'll meet your every need as you look to Him. Let His fresh zoe life flow in and through you today. Others are thirsty for Him. He is SO there for ya. Even if or when all others walk out (of your life), He'll walk in - won't ditch ya ever. facebook.com/shareJesus
