TSP DAILY DEVOTIONAL
CALLED TO FAITHFULNESS
5th August 2020
Dr. Phil Ransom-Bello
KEY SCRIPTURE/MEMORY VERSE: Galatians 5:22(NKJV)
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
These conversations on the fruit of the gospel is so essential for our walk as believers because we need to go back to genuine Christianity not pancake Christianity.
Let your faith be like a rock.
And this is a product of the things you hear or give attention to.
I hope you know your age has nothing to do with your groundedness. That you haven’t gone 20, 30 years on this Christian journey doesn’t mean you can’t be grounded.
So receive the grace to be faithful.
We all need to allow the gospel bear faithfulness, including the pastor. From demonstrating diligence with the word to prayers for the flock to everything else, a pastor needs to stay faithful.
This is not to say there haven’t been times I got weary or forget, but we are ultimately called to bear the fruit of faithfulness.
So whether you are in positional leadership or you are following leadership or you are serving the Lord in any other form, you need to be faithful.
Look, you’ve got to give yourself over to the work of the Spirit. That as you have laid your hand to the plough, you won’t look back(Luke 9:62).
In other words, you are to choose to let go of what you’ve been called FROM and be unyielding in your commitment to what you have been called TO , which is to bear much fruit no matter the circumstance or outcome.
What is my response to the call to faithfulness?
-I believe in the good news of the gospel, that the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus has announced the provision of forgiveness of my sins.
-I don’t just know the gospel, I live the gospel. I am transformed by the gospel. The gospel is working through me.
-The hearing of the gospel produces the fruits of Genuine Faith, Love for all the Saints and Hope of a Guaranteed Future in me.
-The fruits of the gospel are not a product of my ability but are generated supernaturally.
-The gospel bears the fruit of faithfulness in me.
-I give myself over to the work of the Spirit and I diligently respond to the call of a life of faithfulness.
-I live a life of faithfulness.
-My faith is genuine, grounded like a rock and undistracted, staying the course.
-I do not let go of the plough or look back, instead I
I yield to the fruit-bearing process of the Spirit and I receive the reward for being faithful.
-I bear much fruit!
Glory to God!
