The Bible says the word of God is a seed. It has life and can produce fruits when planted in our lives. Are you planting this seed and bearing fruits or living a superficial spiritual life without any fruits? In the last post – Living a fruitful life (Part 1), we saw how we need to prepare our hearts and receive God’s word. Let’s continue the remaining part in this post.
Every seed carries life and has the potential to be fruitful. It can grow and produce fruits only if it is planted. The Bible says the word of God is a seed. It has life and can produce fruits when planted in our lives. Are you planting this seed and bearing fruits or living a superficial spiritual life without any fruits? In this series of posts (Part 1 & 2), let us explore how we can plant God’s word to produce its desired outcome in our lives.
Many of us love to be spectators in life and satisfied being in the audience. This applies to our faith as well. We love to be marveled about God but never move further in real faith. We are content with our amazement and continue to be spectators of God’s blessings. Are you a spectator or an active participant in faith?
Circumstances can drive and direct our life, unless we learn to live above them. Many of us live in disappointment, depression and stress when we allow circumstances to drive our life. Instead, the Bible asks us to trust in God promising God will direct our paths. If we want to live above life’s circumstances, we need to trust God with whole heart. Do you trust in God or trust in other options?
Worrying is a common problem for many of us. We worry about our health, family, kids, financial situation, job, future and so many others things. Sometimes worrying makes us take corrective action; but it can be a problem when keeps repeating and when it becomes a habit. Constant worrying impacts our mental and physical health. It undermines our faith in God and prevents us from enjoying our inheritance of God’s peace.
We are called to live a victorious life. A life which glorifies our creator. We cannot be victorious unless we overcome something. We do have battles to fight and strongholds to conquer. Many of us prefer to ignore this reality of conflict and state of war. We face setbacks in our spiritual journey, but do not realize that there is an enemy working behind those failures. God has called us to be victorious through Jesus Christ. He gave us all provisions to be conquerors. It will be beneficial to realize the reality of our battle and the provisions God has given us to be victorious.
