KEY SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 4:13 KJV” Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:”
God our Father says he has chosen us, ordained us to go and bring forth fruit so that our fruits would remain. Then when we ask anything in the Lord’s name, the father would do it. (John 15:16) God wants you to be fruitful. Fruitfulness increases the body of Christ. The Lord Jesus added that fruitfulness glorifies the father and makes us his disciples indeed. Joh 15:8 KJV “Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so, shall ye be my disciples”. What supply are you bringing into the body of Christ that you belong?
Ephesians 4:16 instructs us to bring in our supplies so the body of Christ may increase. God wants his body on the earth to be in charge of issues in the world. Our Lord Jesus when He walked the shores of this earth was light that lit the path and life of many. He was an expression of the father in a human form. Dear brother or sister this is the idea that the father has about you. God does not want any Christian as a victim needing help. The church in God’s mind should bring solutions to the world. This is the reason He is raising each one of us to the measure, stature and fulness of Christ (Eph 4:13).
IT griefs the heart of the father when many Christians live with a need mentality about themselves. A people who are always crying for help cannot help others. The following is what the Father talks about you. “Saviours shall come up on Mount Zion……” He calls you a Savior. Please note, in God’s order of things, the Father is the gardener, or the caretaker. His main duty is to take care and provide our needs, and we are the branches, the fruit bearers. Our Lord is the vine, our life and support. All these are beautifully pictured in John 15:1-16. Please read through that passage prayerfully. This is why God has raised ministry gifts like Pastors and the rest to teach truths that would bring the church to the measure, stature and fulness of Christ. Stop being a baby and accept the demand the father has placed on you. Give your supply.
I bear fruit for the Lord. The Father is glorified in me as I bear fruit. I refuse to be a need conscious child of God, but a solution provider, bringing answers and joy to a dying and frustrated world. I have the life of God in me.
John 15:7 KJV “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you”.
John 15:16 KJV “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you” .
