Bearing Kingdom Fruit
Part of the Father’s Heart towards us is His desire that we would bear Kingdom fruit in our lives – fruit that pleases Him and that brings glory to His Name. In John 15 Jesus spoke to His disciples about this, and gave them two keys to being fruitful. The first is the key of remaining connected to Him, just as a branch remains connected to a vine. The second is the key of obedience that comes from knowing that He loves us and loving Him in return. The more we remain in Christ and grow in our love for Him, the more the Father will tend us like a Gardner tends the vine, and the more we will bear fruit. We will go from bearing no fruit to bearing fruit, then to bearing more fruit and, eventually to bearing much fruit that lasts forever.

    Kowing Him
    Summary: Jesus was asked what the greatest commandment is. In His reply he gave not only the greatest– love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength – but also  he second greatest - love your neighbour as you love yourself. He also said that the entire Law and Prophets – i.e. the Old Testament – can be summed up in these two. This is the essence, the bottom line of what the Scriptures are all about – to love God through having an intimate, personal relationship with Him (i.e. to know Him) and to love others as we love ourselves by making God known to them.

    Cast Your Cares On Him
    All of us face cares in this life. It’s not a matter of if, but when. What is critical then is how we face them. We can either worry about the cares of this life, or we can try to ignore them. Neither of these two options actually produces the results that we need. In fact, they contribute further to the cares that will come our way in the future. There is a third way we can handle the cares of life: we can cast them on the Lord, because He cares for us.

    Drawing Closer
    Security is a huge concern for VIP’s as they travel. When the President of China came to Hong Kong, barriers and barricades suddenly appeared overnight and the “normal” life of Hong Kong people was disrupted as he moved around town. The average person had no chance to get anywhere near him while he was here. It is quite the opposite with our heavenly Father. There are no security barricades barring our way to Him. The door has been opened; the way to His presence has been prepared; the invitation to enter in has been extended. It is up to us now to accept that invitation and to draw near.

    A New Day Dawns
    When the angel Gabriel announced the birth of John the Baptist, he told Zachariah (John’s father) what the boy would grow up to do. He would be a forerunner, one who would prepare the way for the coming Messiah. He would prepare a people for the coming of the Lord. But how would he do that? The angel said that he would do it by fulfilling Malachi 4:6, the last verse of the Old Testament – he would turn the hearts of the parents to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous. As we look forward to the soon return of the Lord, we His people are to prepare the way for His coming. How? I believe by doing the same thing that John did.

    My Witness Makes a Difference
    Each of us has a story, a testimony about what Jesus has done in our lives. Every day our lives bear witness to our walk with the Lord. We must also be aware that we have an enemy who seeks weak,immature believers to devour. When he finds such,he can turn their witness against them to the point where they participate with him in accusing the brethren. Let’s allow our witness to make a difference as we resist the enemies plan and walk so close to Jesus that people around us say, “Your God will be my God”.

    My Daily Disciplines Make A Difference
    We all have disciplines that we do daily.  We might call them our “to do list” or our “routine” but what they amount to are “disciplines” which we follow in order to keep things in order in our live.  Not only do we have disciplines by which we operate in this world, but we also have spiritual disciplines which help us to grow closer to Jesus and in our ability to be good citizens in His Kingdom.

    My Prayers Make a Difference
    Prayer is more important than most of us think. It is literally God’s invitation to us to participate with Him in the execution of His plan in the earth. James tells us that Elijah was a human being
    just like us, and yet we know that God did amazing things through his life. Elijah was a man of prayer, and he was a man who walked in obedience to God when he heard God speak to him. Imagine what God could do in our generation if we would begin to pray and obey like Elijah did.

    My Love Makes A Difference
     Love is of paramount importance in the Kingdom of God.  Jesus said that the commands to love God and to love one’s neighbor as one loves oneself are the two commandments upon which the Old Testament is founded.  In other words, love is the foundation of God’s Kingdom.  Most of us tend to love others based on our expectations of others – when they meet our expectations we respond positively in favorable way towards them; but when they do not meet our expectations we act negatively towards them, and we feel justified in our actions.  But, that is not love.  The kind of love that God expects us to have towards other is the same that He has towards us.  “That’s impossible”, you say.  Actually, it is not, because God, in His grace, makes His love available to us if we will walk humbly before Him.

    My Humility Makes A Difference
    Summary: Humility is the foundational attitude of God’s Kingdom. We are told in Scripture that “God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble”, and we certainly need God’s grace in every area of our lives if we are going to live lives that bring glory to His name. It follows then that we need to walk humbly before God if we want more of His grace. In other words, my humility – or lack thereof – makes a huge difference in my own spiritual walk, which in turn affects my ability to influence my family, my church, and my community for God’s Kingdom.
