“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.”
We have a good and enviable heritage in Christ, but there is the demand that must be fulfilled in order to experience it in reality Psa. 16:6. The demand is to bare abiding fruit into the kingdom; this simply means reconciling the unsaved to God and make them to abide in the faith 2Cor. 5:17-20; Jn. 15:16. Often, the challenge with lots of believers is ignorance of this demand, which denies them of actualizing the abundant life Hos. 4:6. Some others, it is the laziness at getting the reconciled souls to abide in God Jn. 15:16. And this is where ingathering into the church is vital.
The significance of ingathering of our converts into the church.
The church is more than a place where believers gather to worship God, it is a mysterious center. Some of the mysteries that guarantee the sanctification of converts are:
Jesus is Lord!
Father in the name of Jesus, endue me with the grace to labor that every of my converts shall be gathered into the church and become established in the faith Jn. 15:16.
