This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. John 15:8 (NIV)
“What do you think is the result of my labor?”, a farmer replied the transporter of his produce. It was a very good farming season, and the farmer had worked around the clock to get a bountiful harvest. Because his produce are perishable, they needed to be transported to the factory within some days, else he will risk losing some money due to the rotten products. In anguish to the driver who was delaying in picking the produce from the farm, the farmer’s focus was not just the harvested crops, but the fruits lasting enough to pass the checks of the factory.
A new year has been handed down to us. We have used thirty days out of the 365 days in this year. With time as a seed and other investments that God has granted unto us, he expects us to be diligent enough and put these resources into better use. When man was created, He said unto man:
God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”Genesis 1:28 (NIV)
Every twenty four hours presents unto us the opportunity to be fruitful. God has deposited everything we need to sail through the journey and leave a mark on the Earth. It behoves on us to make good use of the resources and bear lasting fruits. Like the farmer, the goal is not just to bear fruits, but fruits that will last.
This year’s booster will be focusing on bearing lasting fruits. Take time everyday to read the booster as you go through the journey of life. I need to remind us that the spirit booster is to supplement our daily quiet time. Because this is our first booster, we want to wish you a fruitful new year and a lasting impact in the year.
Father, we thank you for a glorious year and another opportunity to manifest your glory by bearing fruits. Thank you for granting us everything we need for life and godliness. We pray that you will grant us all grace to diligently bear lasting fruits that will bring glory to God. AMEN!!!
