John 15:8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
The scripture right before this IF U ABIDE IN ME AND MY WORD ABIDE IN U THEN U SHALL ASK WHAT U WILL AND IT WILL BE GIVEN. This is saying to me when we r walking with him and staying in his word he will take care of our needs. Verse 8 says it is a part of his glory when we his disciples bear fruit. So the opposite is also true. When there is no fruit and we call ourselves Christians that is an oxymoron. I want to be authentic in my claim of having a relationship with Jesus. This is the same Jesus who cursed a fig tree for standing there with the title of a fig tree with no figs. It was just standing looking like it could provide nourishment to someone who needed it and had none to give.
Likewise with us. If we r busy with no fruit we r just busy. If we r disciples with no fruit we are just church folk...undercover without a case. When u think about we r the ones blessed by bearing fruit. Yes it takes u stepping out of your comfort zone or doing something new from time to time. But when we get it, we activate his glory. We activate his prayer answering power in our lives. He does not call the equipped, he equips the called.
That's what I heard. Be encouraged! Be fruitful!
