Thought for the Week!

MATTHEW 7:20, “Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

MATTHEW 7:22-23, “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ “ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

I sense a great move of the Holy Spirit occurring in the midst of this generation. However, the revival that the Lord is releasing in this hour is one that does more than miracles, signs and wonders; as wonderful as they are. It is more than prosperity and wealth in the material realm. He desires to produce “love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control” (GALATIANS 5:22-23)

You see, on that Day when we stand before our Lord He will not ask us how many people we preached to or how many wonderful words of prophesy we uttered. He will ask us were we kind? Were we gentle? Did we refrain from activities and words that were harmful or dishonoring to others? Most importantly, He will ask did we love as He loved. He is calling us to humbly search our heart and honestly assess how fruitful our lives are in the Spirit. How we answer that question and the steps we take in response have eternal consequences. Choose wisely. Glory awaits!
