Christ has given us salvation, the revelation of the Father, and many other great things. But as Christians, what is our responsibility in our Christian life?
Whenever we glorify our Father, we bear fruit — the fruit of the Holy Spirit in our lives, the fruit of our labor when we share our faith with others, and good works, such as acts of kindness and helping people.
Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
We should multiply and be fruitful according to God, but how? It is by sharing the good news, miracles and the greatness of God in our life in order for them to believe and make Jesus the center of their life. Show them how to be a child of God and share the advantages of being one. Show them the changes that Jesus has made in your life. Show how amazing you are because of Jesus.
The importance of fruit bearing:
Jesus says, “I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruits should remain” John 15:16
It is our main purpose for which we are saved, for which Christians are saved.
For Christians, if you abide in Christ and your life bears a lot of fruit, God will invite you to abide more deeply in Him. We must deepen the quality of our devoted time with God.
Whatever stage of fruit bearing that you are in, ask God to lift you to the next higher category, and commit to do your part.
Leviticus 26:9 So I will turn toward you and make you fruitful and multiply you, and I will confirm My covenant with you.
