Read John 15:1-17. Every Christian has a mission from Jesus. It is to produce fruit. Not apples or pears but people.

Jesus wants you to be fruitful. Productive. Successful. That doesn’t mean busy. And it doesn’t mean successful in the eyes of the world. He’s after Kingdom success. He wants fruit that will last.

Most of what we do, won’t last. Our work will fade. Our holidays will get forgotten. What we watched on television won’t matter. What will matter is what we do that will help someone get to know God for themselves. It might be a conversation. It might be a service such as providing food or help to find a job. It is most likely to be in building a relationship that then gave you the opportunity to explain how they could find out more about the God you serve.

When you invest your life in people, you’re bearing fruit that will last. Who can you invest in today?


Think about the following:

  • Who will be in heaven because you shared the Good News about God with them?
