Remain.

Remain in me, Remain in The Word.

There is a process to being productive in the Kingdom.

1. Produce fruit where you are at.

John 15:16 says that Jesus, Himself, chose you. He appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit. The parable of the talents confirms that God has given you something to work with.

Start producing where you are. Believe and speak the Word of God now. It will grow in your heart and it will produce. Always remember that that Word is seed.

2. You will be pruned and purified.

As you produce fruit you will be pruned. Any branch in a vineyard needs to be cut back as it produces. Why? So that it will produce more. God doesn’t ever leave you where you are. When you start to grow He will continue to train you, teach you and correct you. He chastens those He loves!

3. You produce MORE fruit.

The more proficient and obedient you are to the Word of God the more results you will see. If you don’t produce results…you will be cut off.

The production of fruit maintains the connection to the Vine. Without that connection you will lose the very fuel you need to produce. The Word will have no root, no production centre.

4. Continue to produce = Remain in the the Word.

“You cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me…if you remain in me and MY WORDS remain in you, you may ask anything you want, and it will be granted! When you produce fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father.”

Ask.

1 John 3:21, 22

We have a confident assurance to Ask. We have Biblical assent to ask. What can we ask for? 

Anything.

Mark 11:22-24 makes it very clear if you can ask in faith for something you can have anything you pray for. Is that shocking to you? 

1 John 5:14 says that God hears us and if He hears us we can be confident that whenever we ask for anything that pleases him our requests will be granted. 

If that is difficult to process remember God has also given us free access to His throne room of Grace. He has seated us in heavenly realms in Christ at His right hand. We are sons of God, joint heirs with Jesus. We are righteous in His sight. We are filled with His very Spirit.

Why would it be hard to believe we can ask but not just ask to receive what we ask for? If you fulfil the above and are a submitted son of God you won’t ask for something against God’s will.

Release your faith today. Believe what the Bible says. Ask. God wants to answer you and support far more than you want an answer! 

Expect something good today!
