Fruits Of Following Christ

All things we do for Christ is glorious in His sight. Living for Jesus brings blessings we cannot even imagine. We may have felt inadequate with something in our life, for years, like speaking or writing but when the Lord is in our hearts we can do all things. If He wills it that we witness for Him, He will open our mouths and give us words to speak. We will become a powerful vessel for Him. If God wills that we write messages for Him to give out to the lost, He will give us the words to write. In doing so, it will be the Holy Spirit that touches lives and not our own intentions. We may have great desires of our own to serve God but if it isn’t God’s will we must be willing to back out of it. Seek to do God’s will and not your own. If there is something in your life that is holding you back from receiving the Holy Spirit, than give your sins to God. As Paul said, “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling”. Don’t put this off for we don’t know if tomorrow we die. Accept Jesus in Your heart and let Him cut down the chains that have you bound. When we are born again, Jesus will send His Holy Spirit to live among us. If you are to witness to the lost than live by the Holy Spirit. Living by the same teachings we declare to others will yield much fruit. His light will shine bright among this “crooked and perverse nation”. If you hold fast in God’s Word, you will one day “rejoice in the day of Christ”. In judgement, you will be welcomed home in His presence.

I know that nothing I could ever do for my sake would yield eternal joy. Only the things I do in the name of Jesus has given me eternal happiness. I am amazed at what the Lord has done in my life after I finally let Him in my heart. Things I once thought were impossible, are now made easy with His guidance. In the past I’d be left with no answers to my problems and now that Jesus is in my heart there are resolutions. Things are no longer out of my reach. If my desires are to do as God directs than His purposes are fulfilled in my life. God has opened my mouth when I speak to others about Him. He has given me words to write when I write for His sake. I am so grateful that Jesus, my Lord, can you use me in His Work among mankind. For me to do something small that can benefit others is amazing to me. I’ve learned that things may not appear to be big, but they are huge in His eyes, if they are for His glory. Oh Lord, my heart is Yours. It is a joy to follow You. I can do all things in Your Name. Each day, I seek You for You bring me love that never dies. Thank You for everything You do for my life. I am a better person with you by my side. I am safe with You in my life. I look to You for salvation and not of this world. Keep me blameless before You. I seek Your holiness in my life. Shine brightly, all around me, that the lost may be found and brought to You. I hold fast to You, my Lord. Use me in any way You need. I am made to serve You. I love You.

Philippians 2:12-16 (KJV)
12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.
