Preparation is necessary for any task in our life . If I am right to say that without preparation there will be overwhelming and a touch of fear !
When you are ready and knowing what to do next . You are in a better position and allowing yourself to enlarge .
Enlargment needs a well preparation .
Bibles says this to us like this way :
in Mark 4 : 20
“But other people are like seeds sown in good soil. They hear the message, accept it, and bear fruit: some thirty, some sixty, and some one hundred.””
I am going to put in three things you will need for preparation in such a way help you to enlarge in your walk of faith :
1- HEARING / READING THE MESSAGE
(Romans 10:17 )So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
In the life of Jesus we always see Jesus talk to people and spread the message to them . People were hearing the message of salvation . Clear and loud by Christ in the way their own culture and language . Some practical way for us is today , hearing the message , through Internet , our church , thank God we are living a world of technology .
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.(Joshua 1:8)
Reading the message through our personal devotions , in our mobile phones . Computer and ect . Hearing / Reading of the message is one of the key and important principle of preparation .
2- RESPONDING TO THE MESSAGE
(Romans 12 1-2 )So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
Responding is a level of Maturity.
But Hearing/reading is not enough , aaccepting the word and let it sit in the heart is the next step of the grow . Your grow is incomplete without accepting and responding the message . This stage is like ; you hear that your father told you to do a task but you are not responding that and doing that . So what’s the point of that ? You need to accept the word and hold it in your heart that will be a cause of flourish.
3- BEARING THE FRUIT
You have respond very strong . You obeying Him wholeheartedly . Now in Faith you are bearing fruit more and more. Love and submit yourselves to God. Love people and life .
” This is to my father ‘s glory ,that you bear much fruit , showing yourselves to be my disciples.(John 15:8) ”
Bearing fruit means producing even time as much as was planted .
Practice a lot these 3 principles you will be well prepared to bear much fruit for Christ.
