Be Fruitful And Multiply, Part I
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female, He created them. Then God blessed them, and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth." Genesis 1:27,28
God created everything we see in the earth and in the universe, and He gave command for nature to be fruitful and multiply by sowing their seeds and filling the earth with their kind. Even man was given the command to be fruitful and also to multiply by populating the world with his kind and was given dominion over all living creatures.
In the book of Romans it says that God's invisible attributes are clearly seen ever since they were created and for someone not to believe in God's creative power they are without excuse, as if the gospel is preached through nature. We as believers have the "Creative power" of God available to us to transform the world with the sowing of His word and the supernatural ability to call those things that don't exist as though they do. In order for us to be truly fruitful, we are to multiply disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ by the sowing of His gospel and populate His kingdom with believers!
Are you being fruitful and multiplying those things in your life that God has given you? Is the gospel of salvation a reality in your life or are you just on a treadmill of dead and lifeless religion? If so, repent! If you are truly born again, washed in the Savior's blood and filled with His Holy Spirit you will sow and reap of that which God has bestowed upon you to multiply for Him! Most of the true believers today are trapped by guilt and false obligation to some dead church system, either believing they are called to change it, or to somehow help it along by trying to give life to something that is dead!
"By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; and so you will be My disciples." John 15:8
