“Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”
“These things I command you, that ye love one another.”
God’s will is to see all men saved and spend eternity with Him; because God does not delight in seeing any man perish 1Tim. 2:4; 2Pet. 3:9. The scriptures make us to understand that the believer is saddled with the responsibility of getting men saved from the life of sin and reconciled to Him 2Cor. 5:17-20. This responsibility is what is referred to as serving God and the interest of His kingdom, which entitles the believer for God’s blessing Exo. 23:25-26; Jn. 4:35-36. We have established from scriptures that it is not enough for the believer to win souls, to become qualified for the rewards the souls won must abide with God Jn. 15:16. This demands that they must become established in the church.
Scriptural understanding that empowers the believer to labor for abiding fruits.
The church is God’s appointed place of revelation, where the believers eyes of understanding is opened to see what God has for him Psa. 73:16-17. And whatever the believer is able to see is the only thing he can take delivery in life Gen. 13:14-15. God opens the eyes of the believer through the ministry of the teaching priests, who are divinely appointed in the church Isa. 30:20-21; 2Chr. 15:3-5. In essence, to enjoy their ministry the convert must get to and be committed to the church. This is why the church is known as the center of distribution of all blessings of redemption Psa. 65:4.
In essence, getting the converts established in the church is a win-win task. It makes the convert to be established in the faith and God, matured into the fullness of the stature of Christ, and also entitles the believer who labored to get the soul reconciled to God his due rewards and blessings.
Jesus is Lord!
Father in the name of Jesus, I receive the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to labor to the point of my reward Jn. 4:35-36.
Go after all the souls God has blessed you with this year, to ensure all abide in the church and the faith.
Receive the grace and the help of the Holy Spirit to get all your souls abide in God!!
Your due rewards for your labor shall be fully delivered!
