Do you ever feel over worked sometimes? God gave us 6 days of work and a final day of rest on Sunday for a reason. A 7 day week. I also think He gave us only 24 hours in a day for a reason because He knows what we can and can’t handle. It’s true that, what you sow is what you reap. Picture a farmer. If a framer tends to his crops, gives them water, sunlight and the right soil. The crops will grow in time. This is the exact same concept as when you give a human scripture, prayer and worship. They will grow into a Christan over time.
When you hear the world and understand it. This means that you have taken the Holy Spirit into you and accepted Jesus Christ as your own personal Savior. You have the gift and will bear fruit! This is great news! When you bear fruit, you are living life in a way that is worthy to God. He is pleased with your obedience to Him and He will reward you by giving you fruit! The more fruit you bear, the better your life will be as you continue your Christan walk in Faith. Here are some examples of fruit. Charity, joy, peace, patience, benignity (kindness), goodness, longanimity (forbearance), mildness (gentleness), faith, modesty, contingency (self-control), and chastity.
Ask yourself today, do you bear any fruit? This is a good way of knowing how your Christan walk of faith is going so far. Tip: set extra time aside today to read the scriptures and really think about them.
Matthew 13:23 “As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.”
1 Peter 1:24 “For all people are life grass, and all their glory is in the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall.”
Prayer Starter: Lord, please help me and others today work on our crops by yielding in a way that bears fruit. Please help us not feel overworked. Instead, please help us to look at work as a way we can serve you! Amen.
