Writing for five unedited minutes on the prompt Purpose, for katemotaung.com.
I have heard our two-fold purpose as Christians is to glorify God and introduce others to him.
At this point in my life, I want to bear greater fruit for his glory.
I also want to share my fruit with others, so they can taste the sweet life of belief.
Whatever I’m doing, I’m glorifying God, if my heart is in the right place. Whether it’s washing dishes, wiping away my children’s tears, or writing blog posts, I’m giving him glory.
Yet, I am the person given the five talents in Jesus’ parable of the talents. I have not put all those talents to use for good reason…I have been raising my children.
By remaining in him this past year, I have learned that God wants me to use what I’ve learned and share it with others. I shouldn’t keep all my fruit to myself anymore.
I want to go share my fruit in the market with others. Others need to hear what life he’s given me by remaining in the vine. Others need to be grafted into Jesus’ life-giving vine. My job is to invite them in.
What are you doing today to bear fruit for his glory? How are you drawing others to Jesus through your fruit?
