“Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives.” – Galatians 5:25 NLT
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” – Romans 8:14 NKJV
Since even before I was born again, I always had this question about why we are brought on earth? Surely we can’t just be put here to just exist and then die. There has to be something greater, a purpose, a goal to attain. These questions sent me on a trail to seek answers, and to apply those answers so that when my time is up I can say that I’ve done what I was created for. I don’t think I’m the only one, I believe most of you who are reading this have had the same questions and could be on a similar journey or pursuit.
My pursuit came to an end on Sunday, I was always so eager to do and perform, I wanted to do as much as I could so that at the end I would have a POE (Portfolio of evidence). I realized that my ONLY pursuit should be GOD. “Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ” Philippians 3:8 NLT. IF there is work to do it will flow from the relationship rather than to build the relationship. “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain,” John 15:16a NKJV.
Fruit-bearing comes from being connected to the vine, by walking each and every day with the LORD, allowing Him to lead and guide, not only in some areas but in all the areas of our lives. This is where the distinction is made between children of God and sons of God. Children want to have their own way whereas sons choose God’s way. This is also where that distinction is made between, existing only to die and bearing fruit, fruit that will remain. This is the success realm, where you have done what GOD wanted you to do in the time that He had allocated but it will take humility and the leading of the Holy Spirit.
