Life-giving Fruit

Description

The truly wise person, is that one who is redeeming the time and buying up every opportunity to share his or her faith.

"Godly men are growing a tree that bears life-giving fruit, and all who win souls are wise" (Proverbs 11-30).

"The monument I want after I am dead," said Dwight L. Moody, "is a monument with two legs going around the world - a saved sinner telling about the salvation of Jesus Christ."

When a young minister asked the Duke of Wellington whether he did not consider it useless to attempt to evangelize India, the Iron Duke sternly replied:

"What are your marching orders, sir?"

No doubt one of Satan's greatest weapons of deceit in the world today is that of procrastination. Tomorrow I am going to become a soul-winner. Next month, after an evangelistic training program, I will become a great witness. As soon as I finish seminary or Bible college, I'll begin sharing the good news of the gospel.

But "today is the day of salvation, now is the accepted time," declares the Word of God. Sensitivity to God's Holy Spirit - dwelling within to give me supernatural ability - will enable me to tell others what Christ means to me, and what He has done for me.

In God's economy, the truly wise person, is that one who is redeeming the time, buying up every opportunity to share his faith, refusing to put off that which he knows should become a natural, every-day, moment-by-moment part of his life. Wonder of wonders, God even promises to put the very words in our mouths, if we ask Him, as we go in His name.

Bible Reading: II Corinthians 5:11-17

TODAY'S ACTION POINT: I will do what God leads me to do this day to bear life-giving fruit.
