The God Challenge – Are You Being Fruitful?

Reading for the day: Philippians 2:1-4

“ Now if you have known anything of Christ’s encouragement and of his reassuring love; if you have known something of the fellowship of his Spirit, and of compassion and deep sympathy, do make my joy complete–live together in harmony, live together in love, as though you had only one mind and spirit between you. Never act from motives of rivalry or personal vanity, but in humility think more of each other than you do of yourselves.  None of you should think only of his own affairs, but consider other people’s interests also.”

God doesn’t want us to simply love Him in our hearts.  He also wants us to show the world, through every act and deed as well as our words, our loving relationship with Him.  Many times people who aren’t Christians look at those who are and think, “They talk about dedication to God, but they are a lot of talk and not much action.”

Look at your life today and ask yourself, “Was I a blessing to others today?  Did I demonstrate my love of the Lord to others through how I treated them?  Was I truly fruitful, or was I simply busy?”

There is a big difference between keeping ourselves busy with activities that are centered on our own desires and truly being fruitful Christians who are cultivating His love on earth.  God challenges us every day to look beyond simply getting through each day and work toward making each day an opportunity to help others, bless others and pray for others.  Have you taken up God’s challenge today?

Prayer Suggestion: Pray for others before yourself.  Ask the Lord to reveal to you ways that you can be fruitful in your everyday life, dedicating yourself to “thinking more of others than yourself.”
