More Fruit, Day 5

January 5th, 2011

Key Scripture:

John 15:2b. ... and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.

Key Idea:

God longs and fits for, more fruit.
-- Murray

Pray for revelation:

Our Father which art in Heaven, Thou art the heavenly Husbandman. And Christ is the heavenly Vine. And I am a heavenly branch, partaker of His heavenly life, to bear His heavenly fruit. Father, let the power of His life so fill me, that I may ever bear more fruit, to the glory of Thy name.
-- Murray

Key words:

God wants the branches to do what comes naturally, and bear fruit. He wants the best conditions that will allow the branch to produce even more fruit. He prunes things back when necessary, but more about pruning tomorrow.

It should be encouraging that the thing a branch does by just remaining in contact with the vine, produceing fruit, is exactly what God's desire is for us.

When we, the branches, set ourselves on bearing fruit, we will be setting our desires on the exact same things that God wants. As we recognize needs, wants, and desires that we want to be fulfilled, they will be exactly the same ones that God desires.

There is a way to always get the things you ask for in life. Ask for what the givver has to offer. Want the same things they have to give.

Keep in unity with Jesus, and allow God to do his work in you.
