Our spiritual survival, growth and fruitfulness depends on our relationship with Jesus Christ. and our relationship with Jesus Christ depends on prayer and our obedience to Him. Man shall not live from bread alone but from every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. We must be in communion with Jesus Christ all the time. That is why He gives His Holy Spirit to dwell in us.
If we obey Him, then we can be constantly connected, to you have constant communion with Him. But we have to pray, we have to work on our relationship with Jesus Christ. If we are not praying in the spirit always then we cannot bear fruit. If we are not hearing from Him we cannot do His will; if we do not seek Him all the time and go after Him then we will drift from Him, we will not hear Him and we will get occupied with other things, we will be led astray. We need to keep our focus on Jesus Christ and pray always, pray in the spirit that’s why He gives us the Holy Spirit to live in us to guide, us to teach us, to be with us forever, that is Christ in us, but we must cherish His presence, we must covet His presence, look after his presence our relationship with Him and not allow anything to get in between us and Him. We must seek to serve Him, seek to be pleasing to Him, be attentive and listen.
If I do not listen to the Holy Spirit, if I do not receive a message from Jesus, I cannot be speaking to you, because I cannot pass on to you if I have not received from Jesus Christ. We cannot bear fruit if we do not abide in the Vine, if we do not stay in Christ; and we stay in Christ through prayer, obedience, doing His will. He will guide us, He will teach us, He will discipline us and He will send us. He will give us work to do, but we must listen, obey, respond and go and do it or else we cannot serve Him. We cannot serve His kingdom, we cannot be fruitful if you do not pray in the Spirit, walk in the Spirit, you cannot do the will of God.
Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. God is spirit and those who worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in truth, always. The Spirit of Christ lives in them, dwells in them and they are led by the Spirit. Are you alive in Christ? Are you growing and are you fruitful? We need to be in Christ. We need to be connected, listening, attentive, obeying His commands and doing His will. We must follow Him and endure with Him until the very end or else He will say to us: “Go away I never knew you. You had no business with me, you would not come after me; you
were running after your own desires.”
Are you alive in Christ, not just surviving but thriving growing and bearing fruit for His kingdom?
May Jesus bless you.
