BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY
This is now the third time Jesus showed himself to His disciples after He was raised from the dead. So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?" He said to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I love You." He said to him, "Feed My lambs." John 21:14,15
The greatest of all the fruit of the Spirit is love and Jesus was telling Peter that in order to love he must give that which he had received from the Lord to others. No greater love has anyone but that he lay down his life for others and in order to do this we must feed those with the life giving word that we were given, that they in turn might do the same.
Divine multiplication is giving your life to others, feeding them, mentoring them and walking with them on the journey until they are true disciples of Christ. The apostle Paul told Timothy that the things he had heard him teach he should give to faithful men that they might also teach others. Sadly, today millions hear the word, but don't share it and as the parable says, the devil comes and steals it from their heart.
The word of God is seed to be sown in the hearts of men, making them divine plants in the garden of God, disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus commanded us to go and make disciples and to be fruitful and multiply what we have been given! So, whats in your garden?
"Most assuredly, I say to you, when you were younger you girded yourself and walked where you wished; but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish." John 21:18
