Truth for Today
Mark 4:8 8 Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, some multiplying thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times.”
Believers should bear fruit to the glory and honor of God.
I have the privilege of living in a farming community. Farmer spend much time getting the ground ready for planting so they can reap the best harvest. There are many factors involved ranging from moisture to fertilizer to nutrients and more for them to make a good crop.
Jesus spoke of a sower…a farmer. As he scattered the seed some fell in hard places and some fell on the good soil. The seed that fell on the good soil produced a crop ranging from thirty to one hundred fold. The lesson is clear to me. The Word of LIFE is sown in our heart so that we can bring fruit to HIS honor and HIS glory.
Is your heart open to the Word of God? Is there anything that hardens you to what God wants to do in your life? Is HIS Word bearing fruit that indicates you belong to Jesus?
I pray that HIS Word will bring forth abundant fruit that brings honor and glory to Jesus. It may bring forth a song that you just can’t keep inside you. His Word may bring forth a witness of the power of God in your life. His Word may transform an attitude that has been sinking in despair. His Word might just turn your life away from a destructive habit. His Word is powerful in hearts broken before HIM.
Believers’ should bear fruit to the glory and honor of God.
Lord, bring forth the fruit that honors and magnifies YOUR awesome power and presence in our life…In Jesus Name…Amen!!!
