Jesus Christ challenged his followers to preach the gospel and bear fruits for God’s kingdom; anyone who fails to bear fruits would not be rewarded in heaven, but he or she would be condemned. Jesus said,
“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit” (John 15:1-2).
As far as Jesus is concerned, there are no excuses in heaven for unfruitful Christians. Every Christian must diligently yield positive rewards for the kingdom of God. The followers of Jesus Christ must be courageous to face and subdue any odd that challenge their faith. No Christian should submit to oppression, since he or she must preach the gospel. Gospel evangelization is essential; it is God’s commission and every Christian is commanded to engage in it. The scripture clearly expressed, “I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry” (2 Timothy 4:1-5).
Dear Jesus Christ, please help me to remain diligent in your service. Help me to preach the gospel and bear fruits for your kingdom. Give me the grace to endure all persecutions, and empower me through the Holy Spirit to lay excuses aside and diligently serve you. Anoint and give me the grace to be an instrument that you will use to depopulate Satan’s kingdom and populate your kingdom. Let me serve you well on earth so that I can be qualified for your tremendous heavenly rewards. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
