Be Fruitful.

Key Verse

“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it …” Genesis 1:28a

Text — Genesis 1:26-28


When God created man, He pronounced the blessing of fruitfulness upon him and from that time man began to prosper until he ate the forbidden fruit and fell out of the grace of God.
The blessing of fruitfulness is not only related to childbearing but also to every area of our lives. The desire of God is that you should be fruitful and multiply.

These include:

(i) Fruitful in good works – become a friend of Jesus by surrendering your life to Jesus. Live a holy life and let your life bear the fruit of the Spirit – love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance.

(ii) Fruitfulness in spiritual things – Love for God and His word.
Drinking daily from the sincere milk of His word so as to grow.

(iii) Fruitfulness in serving God – Develop a desire to use your talents to work for God and preach the gospel to sinners.

(iv) Fruitfulness in academics and career – You will excel and have good success. You will be the head and not the tail.

The blessing of fruitfulness will make you multiply in every area of your life. Then you will replenish the earth by becoming a shining example for others to follow.
