Reflecting On GIFT's Spiritual Transformation Path Can Help Us Produce Fruit
Drawing upon the realization that good farming requires both good seed and good soil to produce a fruitful harvest, the Parable of the Sower should cause us to examine whether our hearts are properly conditioned to nurture God's Word (seed) planted in us, so we can produce good fruit.
GIFT has developed a reflection on this Parable, including corresponding and reinforcing Scripture.
GIFT's Spiritual Transformation Path can be a resource for a powerful personal reflection or group Bible study.
G.L.O.W. Can Help Us Remember To Be Godly, Loving, Obedient And Witnessing
Studying what the Bible says about these life traits can help us make certain that we're living a Christian life to the fullest and achieving what God wants from us in our lives. As we GLOW, we will truly become a light in the darkness that's all around us and is, sadly, so evident around the world. As Christians, we need to reflect on -- and reflect -- the character of God and share the wonder of Godliness. We need to love as Christ loved us. We need to be obedient to God and His plan for all His creation -- including both obeying God's commands and being obedient to what God wants us to do in our daily lives and with the life He has given us. And we need to share the knowledge God's love -- and witness God's love -- with others as a light shining in darkness, to help others come into a right relationship with God for all eternity.
