You have been called according to the purpose of God in Christ. But what fruits do you have to show for your calling and salvation? Remember: Maturity is measured by the fruits you bear. Without fruits, you are not fit for the Masterís reward. Without fruits, you risk being thrown into the furnace as firewood. Is growth taking place in your mind? What mindset are you operating by? In the kingdom of God, we are required to live by the mindset of Christ, who, though in the form of God, took on the form of a servant and humbled himself unto death (Philippians 2:6-8).
We are in the kingdom to worship, to serve, and to rule. Are you growing and maturing when it comes to worship? What service are you providing in the kingdom? What areas in life are you ruling over? Even though we are children of the Almighty God who have been made priests and kings unto God by the Lord Jesus Christ, we are expected to rule in humility. A maturing child of God is a person who is willing and always prepared to serve. Maturity is not in receiving all the time; it is in giving and showing the way through service and leadership. Leadership calls for service in humility. Can you boldly affirm that you are growing as a child of God? Where are your fruits? Name them if you can. Your assignment will only be fulfilled if you bear the desired fruits.
