Work for Eternal Fruit

Recently I partnered with another writer on a ministry project.   Before beginning on the project we opened in prayer.

Each time she prays, she ask the Lord “let us work for eternal fruit in this endeavor”.

How is God strengthening you?

It had been a long time since I’d heard it put this way.  However, whatever we do, we should be working for eternal fruit.  We may not know how our talents are used to God’s glory, but He knows and sees.  Our actions and deeds may be reaching people for the kingdom in ways we will never know about until we reach glory.

I was reminded, in everything I do, to bathe it in prayer, to use my talents for the Lord and to pray my efforts will reap eternal fruit.

Jesus spoke on this subject several times.  He told us:

“Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit.  {Matthew 12:33}

“You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you.   {John 15:16}

“But the seed in the good soil, these are the ones who have heard the word in an honest and good heart, and hold it fast, and bear fruit with perseverance.  {Luke 8:15}

Are you working for eternal fruit?
