Today, September 3, 2018 I am reflecting on the word of God today. I want to start us off in John 15 and verse 1.
15 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
What I want to talk to you about this morning in these versus is that infers is that in John 15 – 5, the word of God says that he wants us to bring forth much fruit – it doesn’t say little fruit, but it says much fruit. When the word of God talks about much fruit is talking about a over an abundance type of the fruit. Then to go on and verse 5 the rest of it says, for without me you can do nothing. Therefore, the word of God has to be number one in our life. We as children of God cannot truly be successful without God. Therefore, God must be number one in our lives.
We should be believing God for his best in our life. This includes being whole, healthy in all areas of our life.
If we don’t have fruit in our life, we need to examine our life. Maybe there’s some changes that we need to make in our life.
It could be quite possible the only thing we need to change is our commitment to God. We must understand that God is our source. People are not our source. Sometimes God will work through people. We have a choice in the matter. God gives us all free will in our lives. He is not a dictator. God is a loving heavenly father that once the very best for his kids. God is our dad. Just as the father in the natural and want the very best for his kids, God wants the very best for us as a child of God.
3 John -2
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
God wants us to prosper and every area our life. If we are lacking something, we need to go to the word of God and see what the word says. The word of God must be our final authority.
