“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him bears much fruit, for without Me you can do nothing.” — John 15:5
Is there any of us that does not take joy when we see fruit from our life? Have you followed the inner direction you receive and are amazed when you are able to witness in a situation that was totally unexpected? Do you come across times when you just know you are to offer to pray for someone even out in the market place?
We do not have the ability in ourselves to know where to speak a spiritual word, but we have the life of Jesus in the form of the Holy Spirit to direct us.
Recently as we were checking out of a hotel in Hawaii. I felt led to give a gospel tract, “Life Pathways”, to the porter, as I was waiting for my husband to drive the car up to load the luggage. I am aware that there are many diverse religions in Hawaii, so I had not a clue as to his beliefs, but I was following an inner nudge. I gave it to him with the statement, “I just want you to have this little booklet. It describes the most important decision you can make in life.
Would you believe he said, “I have children and I have been thinking that I need to find my way in what I believe.” The seed was sown. The rest is up to the Lord to bring someone to follow up and water that seed.
