John 15:16 “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”

I welcome you brethren with great pleasure to the last third of the year. All too soon, eight months of our “year of great and mighty blessings”have flown past. We thank God for His wonderful works in our midst and in our lives in those months.

This month of September has been divinely tagged as “our month of great harvest of souls.”People of God, when God blesses us, He does not just bless us for ourselves but expects us to be a blessing to others. (Genesis 12:2).

By analogy therefore, when He saves us, He does not expect us to keep the blessings of salvation to ourselves, but for us to go out and save others who do not know Him yet.

Our anchor scripture for the month, John 15:16, states it clearly that we should bear fruit, and not just any fruit but abiding fruit. There is no farmer who would not be disappointed if his planted crops do not bring forth an expected harvest. So it is with our salvation; God expects us to multiply ourselves by winning more souls into His kingdom.

Winning souls is not just because God commands it but because it is wisdom, according to Proverbs 11:30b“and he that winneth souls is wise.”There are a lot of souls still perishing and being sold lies from the pit of hell, who need to come out of darkness into God’s marvellous light.

Therefore brethren, more than ever before, this month, let us be up and doing in winning souls into God’s kingdom and as we do so we shall all be greatly rewarded in the mighty Name of Jesus. Shalom!
