In Genesis 1:28, God gave us a dominion mandate. The first step towards achieving this mandate is fruitfulness. This implies that no matter what the condition is, God expects and desires fruits from His children…
One of the definitions I like about fruitfulness is the one that says it is the intellectual productivity of a creative imagination.
Looking at today’s anchor text, we will examine three ways through which God ensures that we abound in fruitfulness.
He makes all grace to abound towards us…
God ensures that we walk in the full dimension of His grace.
The Bible said ‘And God is able to make all grace abound towards you…’ This implies that God releases His bountiful grace upon us. Grace is a supernatural robust platform on which every provision of God (including fruitfulness) thrives. Fruitfulness is a function of grace (John 1:15-16; 10:10).
He ensures that we have all sufficiency in all things…
He supplies all our needs according to His riches in glory… (Phil. 4:19).
He makes available to us, all things that pertain to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3).
‘Our sufficiency is of God…’ (2 Cor. 3:5).
Our God gives liberally and upbraids not (James 1:5).
He ensures that we abound to every good work…
At this level, we begin to walk in the newness of life. God perfects His work in us, such that we no longer live for provision, we live for vision (the heavenly vision). He works in us both to will and to do, of His good pleasure (Phil. 2:13). God tilts our attention away from self, but towards Himself and His desire for us, through the power of the Cross… (Gal. 2:20; 6:14).
Remember, fruitfulness is not just an admonition, it’s a command. We bring into captivity, every spirit of bareness as we arise to take on this God-given mandate, in the name of Jesus Christ!
