In the third part of this series, we saw some ingredients of a fruitful life.
These include compassion, active love. Sacrificial praising of God. These are in addition to the ingredients that we discovered in part one Like putting Jesus First, holiness, loving God, reading his word and meditating on it and doing the Word of God. In this study, today, we want to look at one major ingredient of a fruitful life. It is called faith, Heb.11:6, May the Almighty increase our faith greatly today even as we study at His feet in Jesus, Name. Amen.
- FAITH IS THE FERTILIZER FOR THE TREE OF LIFE
Faith is the fertilizer for the tree of Life. If faith is absent, the tree of life of any man will be on a barren ground and fruitless. The Bible is full of great men and women whose lives were great testimonies simply because they had faith in God. From patriarchs to a harlot,they got their names immortalized in the Book of books by overcoming great odds through simple faith in the Almighty God.
Some of these men and women include names like: Noah. Abraham,
Sarah, Moses, Joshua. Rahab, Elijah, the widow of Zarephah Elisha.
Naaman, the Shunamite woman, Shadrach, Meshach, and
Abednego. Mary, Paul and Silas, just to mention a few. They are human beings like us. Their God is our God. May our faith be greater than theirs in Jesus, name. Amen.
