The late Dr. Myles Munroe said, “when the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable”. I must say that this is very true. Until we know why we are to be fruitful, we may abuse the opportunities God is opening for us to be fruitful. It is there expedient that we spend time to share our views on why we should be fruitful.
This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.John 15:8 (NIV)
The first reason why we are to be fruitful is that God will be glorified. As we have been discussing in this series, the purpose of your fruitfulness is to bring Glory to God. Every car manufacturer puts his logo on his manufactured car, so that whoever sees the car, although owned by someone else, names it by the manufacturer. The logo defined the brand and the description of the car, which always leads to the manufacturer.
I would be deceiving all my readers if I do not make this point very clear. The series nor anything about this blog is to get applause or appreciation from men. I believe that through this, men should come to appreciate what God is doing in their lives by repositioning them to establish His purposes on Earth. You carry on you the brand of God (your manufacturer), so whatever you do goes into His account, either to glorify or tarnish the image of the God.
Your fruitfulness therefore is a sign to everyone else that you are in God’s family. There is no other way but through your life, God is glorified. Jesus Christ emphasized this in the beatitudes when He said,
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.Matthew 6:13 (NIV)
In the next few days, we will have a look at some of the men in the Bible who have made this truth a reality in their lives.
It is my prayer that we will receive an understanding of what God has for us through Christ Jesus our Lord, and the investment He has made in us. I pray that we will receive the Grace to be fruitful in all things, in Jesus name AMEN!!!
