Expectations at both ends, we expect God to do many things for us, to repair many broken areas of our life, to set right where we messed up and its an endless list, does God expect anything in return?
"Now at vintage-time he sent a servant to the vinedressers, that he might receive some of the fruit of the vineyard from the vinedressers. " Mark 12:2 (NKJV)
A tree must bear fruit, or else it has no value, for the very purpose of its existence is to provide fruit for its Master.
God expects to see all His goodness in us. He wants us to please Him, the words of our mouth and the meditations of our heart to be acceptable before Him.
There is an appointed time, a fixed day when God will come to take an account of all of this blessedness He has bestowed on us.
How have we used our time, finances, relationships during our stay on this earth will all be accounted for.
Does God knows our situation and the extent of our readiness, surely Yes!! and thus He tarries for His coming, for He has said....
"The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. " 2 Peter 3:9 (NKJV)
He waits for us, to repent and return, He desires that we should not all perish.
Dear Ones!!! If we are fruitful for God, then its really good that God has been able to fulfill His will in our life, and if not then He calls us to be fruitful, to submit to Him to be fruitful, for be in Him to be fruitful.
Fruitfulness is not our choice, its God desire towards our blessedness and is in His perfect will, let's not miss this opportunity to be fruitful and blessed.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
