TOPIC: Abide In Me (Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries Thursday, 26 April 2018)

FIRE SCRIPTURE: John 15:1-10

MEMORY VERSE:
“If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” – John 15:7

The MESSAGE:
We have a heavenly Father who loves and cares about our well-being. It is good we know that the plan and intention of God towards us, His children, is good and better than we can imagine for ourselves (Jeremiah 29:11). God who is our Father created us in His image and likeness to fulfil His will and desire here on earth.

According to our passage (John 15), it is clear that our Father (the husbandman) desires that we bring forth fruits unto Himself. The desire of our Father is to eat of every fruit that the life of His children produces just like the story of Jesus and the fig tree (Mark 11:12-22). Everyone of us is like the tree that the Father is waiting for, in order to partake of the fruit that comes out of our lives. But it is good to know that as much as the Father desires and is hungry, waiting patiently to eat of the fruit that proceeds out of our lives, we won’t be able to bring forth fruits worthy of Him if we are not abiding in His son, Jesus Christ (who is the vine) according to our passage. Abiding in the Son is simply allowing Jesus Christ have total control of our lives. He alone should be the staff we are resting on. We should get to the point where we say we can of ourselves do nothing except what Jesus says. This way we are certain we are abiding in Him. When we abide in Him, we can bear fruit for the husbandman, our Father (James 5:7)

It is good, as children of God, to constantly desire to bring forth fruit unto our Father by allowing the Son of God to abide in us and we live in Him, which comes through obeying the word of our Lord. Living our lives based on His commandments makes us abide in Him. God desires fruit from your life, start obeying Him today and bring forth fruit.

MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:
We draw strength from what abides within us, and what abides within us is what we place our hearts on.

PROPHETIC WORD:
Let the power and grace to abide in the word of God rest upon your life and family today.
