Topic: You Have Been Given A Divine Commission [TREM Devotional 22 July 2020]
“Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go bring and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the father in my name, he may give it to you.” John 15:16 (KJV)
Beloved, you have been given a divine commission that you should go and bring forth fruit. The Lord will not give you an assignment that He has not empowered you to do. The commission is that you should bring forth fruit and that your fruit should remain. It shouldn’t be wasted! Then he ties it up that “whatever you ask of the Father, in my name he may give it to you.”
Could it be that some prayers are not answered because you refused to connect to the heartbeat of God? You’ve been flaunting your prayer request before him. What of soul winning? What about people who are going to hell? Don’t you know there is hell and there is heaven? It is not a figment of any person’s imagination. Hell is real!
All those without Christ are going to hell. Don’t you understand? The onus lies on us to help them but we come to church, enjoy service, enjoy the blessing, and then leave waiting for another Sunday to be blessed, but others should go to hell! Doesn’t it bother you? God asked me to stir up your spirit once again. Let that fire that used to be there return. Be concerned about people who don’t know Jesus. Be concerned that they are in bondage. Many of them don’t know what to do. They don’t know which way to turn.
Whether you are a CEO or whatever position you find yourself in, it is an avenue to make a formidable impact in our world for the kingdom. Every opportunity I have, as I travel the world, I witness to people. I go the extra mile to tell them about Jesus Christ. Some people will argue with you and say all kinds of stuff. All you need to tell them is to taste and see that the Lord is good because I cannot ask you to tell me the taste of an orange you have not tasted, that will be foolishness. When you have tasted the orange then you can tell me the taste. So that is how I cannot explain Jesus.
