BEING FRUITFUL & PRODUCTIVE (PART 2)
Theme scriptures: 3 John 2, Colossians 1:10, 2 Corinthians 9:8
A. It is God’s desire for all His children to be fruitful and productive in every good work. In everything you are involved in GOD WANTS YOUR LIFE TO BE FULL OF RESULTS..
3. We GIVE THANKS to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, PRAYING ALWAYS for you,
4. Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the LOVE which ye have to all the saints,
5. For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;
6. Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:
7. As ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellow servant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ;
8. Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit.
9. For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to PRAY FOR YOU, and to desire that ye might be FILLED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIS WILL in all WISDOM and spiritual understanding;
10. That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, BEING FRUITFUL IN EVERY GOOD WORK, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
11. Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;
12. GIVING THANKS unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
There are people who are fruitful in their business or job but they are not increasing in the knowledge of God and that’s wrong.
God puts your increasing spiritually first. In 3 John 2, the man’s soul must prosper as others follow.
“…Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be health, even as thy soul prospereth”
