“Godly men are growing a tree that bears life-giving fruit, and all who win souls are wise” Proverbs 11:30
I have never led anyone to Christ, and I never shall.
However, I have had the privilege of praying with thousands of people who have received Christ as a result of my witness.
When a person receives Christ, it is the work of the Holy Spirit. That is why I cannot boast over much fruit or be discouraged over little fruit.
The responsibility for fruit belongs to the Holy Spirit who works in and through the believer, producing fruit and changing the lives of those who respond favorably to our witness.
The power of our Lord Jesus Christ is available to all who trust and obey Him. We need to “understand how incredibly great His power is to help those who believe Him.”
The Lord Jesus commissioned the disciples to go into all the world and preach the gospel, with the promise that He would always be with them.
Bible Reading: Proverbs 11:24-31
Today’s Action Point: Today I will consciously draw upon the supernatural resources of the Holy Spirit to obey God’s commands for holy living and fruitful witnessing.
Question: Who do you know who needs to hear the gospel? How can you begin to communicate it to them if they seem resistant or hostile to it?
