BLESSED FRUITFULNESS                          John 15:1-5 (KJV)

 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, – Titus 2:7

Fruitfulness has qualifications, so does growth. Fruitfulness could be negative if the source and nature are outside the plan of God for an individual’s life. There is a kind of Fruitfulness mentioned in the epistle of Paul to the Galatians which is of the flesh – bad and deadly:

Read Galatians – Galatians 5:19-21

There could be positive and blessed fruitfulness as found in Galatians 5:22-23:

 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance…”

Let us look at the secret behind blessed fruitfulness. In our Bible reading of today, it is clearly stated that abiding in Jesus Christ is the secret of bearing good fruit. The first secret of divine fruitfulness is being born again. Another secret is abiding in Jesus Christ. Jesus further said:

“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.” – John 15:5

How then can we abide in Jesus Christ? It is very simple. Obey all His commandments. Read John 15:7-8 

Beloved, one other fact is that everyone will eat out of whatever fruit he or she bears – be it good or bad. Therefore, it is wise for you to decide today whether you want to bear good or bad fruit. The good news is that everyone is capable of bearing good fruit provided the fellow comes into Jesus Christ by faith in the saving power in His blood. He said “…if ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed” (John 8:31).

PRAYER LINE: Father, help me abide in Jesus Christ for blessed fruitfulness. (O.H)


A surrendered life is a fertile ground for fruitfulness
