Why are some Christians more fruitful than others? Why do others have zero fruitfulness?
Discipleship 101 in the marketplace 5012 of 7000 – The obedient disciples of
Christ continually watch out for these four variables as it affects fruitfulness in EVERYTHING we do..FAITHFULNESS, AVAILABILITY, TEACHABILITY and OBEDIENCE.
Play down on any of these and they result in suboptimal performance at our duty post.
23 But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”
2 Corinthian 6: 1-10 Companions as we are in this work with you, we beg you, please don’t squander one bit of this marvelous life God has given us. God reminds us,
I heard your call in the nick of time;The day you needed me, I was there to help.
Well, now is the right time to listen, the day to be helped. Don’t put it off; don’t frustrate God’s work by showing up late, throwing a question mark over everything we’re doing. Our work as God’s servants gets validated—or not—in the details. People are watching us as we stay at our post, alertly, unswervingly . . . in hard times, tough times, bad times; when we’re beaten up, jailed, and mobbed; working hard, working late, working without eating; with pure heart, clear head, steady hand; in gentleness, holiness, and honest love; when we’re telling the truth, and when God’s showing his power; when we’re doing our best setting things right; when we’re praised, and when we’re blamed; slandered, and honored; true to our word, though distrusted; ignored by the world, but recognized by God; terrifically alive, though rumored to be dead; beaten within an inch of our lives, but refusing to die; immersed in tears, yet always filled with deep joy; living on handouts, yet enriching many; having nothing, having it all.
Prayer: Lord God, help us to be faithful, available, teachable and obedient in our service to You. Cause everything we do be all about You so that there will be less of us and more of You especially when testing comes to authenticate and validate us for fruitfulness in representing Your virtues to a decaying world in Jesus name, amen
