St John 15:5 1 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.
God expects you to bring forth much fruit, do not allow yourself to live less than that.
Consider the fact that the first instruction that God gave man was a directive as to how to use time. He said in Genesis 1:28 …”be fruitful, and multiply”. One implication of this scripture is that fruitfulness and productivity pleases God. In other words, he hates unproductivity. so much so that he said in St. John 15: 2 that every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away. Further to that, in the story of the talent in Matthew 25:14-30, take note that God took the one talent from the servant that was unproductive and he gave it to the one that was most productive. Become a master at bringing forth much fruit.
Productivity coaches will tell you that the key to being highly productive on any given day is to make a task list consistent with your goals and then start first with the most important task on your to-do list and do not move to the second most important task until you complete the first. That is an important principle to follow as it teaches the law of focus. To bring forth much fruit you must learn to focus; however, it is not the only thing that you must learn. Jesus in teaching his disciples how to bring forth much fruit left them with two principles in St. John 15:5 he said abide in me and let my words abide in you. So what Jesus was saying is that to be highly productive not only must you focus, you must also live in His presence and live by His principles. The success of Abraham, Isaac and Job was built on these principles.
I am sure that you want to use your days to bring forth much fruit, now that you have the keys, what will you do with it?
Life Application: Practice the law of focus while you live in His presence and practice total obedience.
Prayer: Lord, help me to be productive. Lord, it is imperative to you that we bringeth forth much fruit. Help me to do so in Jesus’ name, amen.
