Word for Today:You did NOT choose Him; He chose you!
Ministry of the Word : True Spirituality
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
“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” ( John 15:16)
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!! Hallelujah!!! Praise God for grace!
Do you know that you did not become a Christian by choice alone ? Did you know that you were assisted to become a true believer, not by your own efforts? Jesus
Himself said it:
“No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:44).
Everyone of us needs the GRACE of God to be drawn to Christ. Please, thank God for grace. Some preachers sometimes wonder why a particular person is so difficult to covert. Not only the preaching is needed; grace is required to draw a soul to Christ.
In Christ Jesus, God has chosen us to go into the world and bear fruit ( fruit here is not limited to having children), rather refers mainly to spiritual fruit.
Yes, we are to go into the world and bear fruit. We are to win souls by sharing the word and ministering Him to others; we are to ensure that the souls that we have won are growing and maturing. The memory verse is not without a promise: “that whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you” (John 15:16c).
“It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life” (John 6:63).
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
Father, thank you for drawing us to Christ; as we share your words daily, please help us to draw uncountable souls to Christ in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
