INCREASING YOUR CAPACITY

INCREASING YOUR CAPACITY – Pastor Chris

I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit (John 15:1-2).

Proverbs 11:30 says, “…he that winneth souls is wise.” A soul winner is wise because he’s aligned to God’s number one passion, the passion to turn men from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God. Therefore, if you’ve been a soul winner, God has a plan to give you greater capacity to win more souls.

That’s the point the Master highlights in our opening verse, when He says, “…every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.” What this means is that as a branch that produces fruits, the Father has a plan for your capacity building, to make you even more productive. He increases the grace on your life to achieve more.

For example, if you have grace to win and retain thirty souls in your fellowship, cell group, or church, it doesn’t matter what you do to increase, you may not exceed that number. Your effectiveness and productivity in any assignment would be to the extent of the grace granted you to function or carry out that assignment. For you to do more, the Lord will have to give you more grace; the Bible says, “But he giveth more grace…” (James 4:6); that additional grace takes you to a higher level.

Suddenly, you discover that you’re able to do more than you hitherto could; you’re more efficient; you put in the same efforts as you used to, but your results are greater. This is why it’s so important that we remain in constant fellowship with the Lord as we serve Him. Grace is increased as we know the Lord more, through the ministry of the Spirit and the Word.

2 Peter 1:2 says, “Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.” This is your sure guarantee to a fruitful and productive life.

PRAYER

Thank you, blessed Father, for giving me an abundance of grace for increased fruitfulness. I produce excellent results in my work and ministry by the power that’s at work in me, and everything I do prospers, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
