Welcome to March …….
Exciting to think we are already in March of 2009. Week 10. This year, so far has been amazing. I am reminded of the word we started with this year, and now I understand how serious God was with it. Do you remember? Rise up, Get up, Move up ….. wow.
God has been Calling us to a new standard for quite a long time now. I never really understood what it implied, accept that He was expecting more. We get the same situation in the book of John Jesus says.
Joh 15:1 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser.
Joh 15:2 Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
This is His standard. Bearing fruit. These fruit are all about the fruit of the spirit. I know that God intended for us to have an abundance. He has geared us with all the power possible, simply to bear fruit, in due season. Are you bearing fruit that suites your level of maturaity? I think this is precisely what God has been, yelling: “Your fruit does not suite!” Hey, I am a poet 🙂
This month of March is the month where we will specifically allow the Holy Spirit to allow us to become mature. We will be challenged to where we should have been and we will be ready to be “pruned” or “cut”. As long as we bear the fruit that, according to God, we should bear. But, how do we know if we should have been bearing some fruit, or not? That is simple. What has God been talking to you about? Those things should have been dealt with already. We should already have been bearing those fruits.
Have a great month, as we at BLAZE focus on bearing more and more fruit.
