Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Fruitfulness

Written by Andrei Yashurin

Continued from page 1

So, what isrepparttar solution?

I am deeply convinced that we become happy not because we seek to be happy, but when we strive to be fruitful, when we do our best to find out and to fulfill our life’s mission. Happiness is a by-product of fruitfulness.

Jesus knew that He came from God, and was going back to God. He was fully aware ofrepparttar 127063 fact that God sent Him with a specific mission. Do we know that all these truths apply to us as well?

"I choose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit" (John 15:16).

This call is not something forced upon us from an outside by an arbitrary God. Our call consists of all that isrepparttar 127064 most natural and most essential for us. We cannot separate ourselves from our appointment without violating of ourselves. The cost of disobedience to our life’s mission is a life of an inner division and turmoil.

"I amrepparttar 127065 wine, and you arerepparttar 127066 branches. He who abides in Me, and I in Him, bears much fruit… If anyone does not abide in me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered, and they gather them and throw them intorepparttar 127067 fire" (John 15:5-6).

Jesus spoke of an inner fire of guilt, stress, dissatisfaction and tension that burns within minds of those who don’t come torepparttar 127068 consciousness of their unity with God, and, therefore, remain unfruitful. However, to those who are obedient to their call, He gave a wonderful promise:

"If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done to you" (John 15:7).

All things are added to those who seekrepparttar 127069 Kingdom of God above all else. All desires will be granted to those who put God’s desires first in their life. But how can we be sure of that? There is only one way, and it is our personal experience.

It does not matter whether you agree or disagree withrepparttar 127070 central thought of this article. What really important is whether you are willing to try and prove it for yourself. Allrepparttar 127071 intellectual reasoning inrepparttar 127072 world cannot substitute one practical application of an idea.

Possibility Thinking and Service

Written by Andrei Yashurin

Continued from page 1

You won’t be able to give much if you believe that there is a some kind of void or lack in your life. Andrepparttar truth is that, no matter how you feel, or how you’ve been taught, there is an abundance in you and all around you. Abundance! Think about it. Believe in it. Declare it as often as you can. It isrepparttar 127062 only way how you can bring it into visible manifestation.

This life and all that it contains belong to us. All things are ours - to appreciate and to use for our good, and forrepparttar 127063 good of others.

“All things are yours: whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, orrepparttar 127064 world or life or death, or things present or things to come - all are yours” (1 Corinthians 3:21-22).

This is not a beautiful metaphor, and not even a promise. This is a fact, and our inner eyes need to be open to see it. All manifestations of lack are abnormal, and their root is a wrong perception.

Possibility thinkers serve out of awareness that their hour had come.

“Jesus knew that His hour had come” (John 13:1).

“My food is to dorepparttar 127065 will of Him who sent me and to finish His work. Do you not say, there are still four months and then comesrepparttar 127066 harvest? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look atrepparttar 127067 fields, for they are already white for harvest!” (John 4:34-35)

Possibility thinkers know that there is no need to wait for anything. Allrepparttar 127068 resources are given to them here and now. Allrepparttar 127069 opportunities are presented to them here and now. The call of God within their hearts prompts them to act here and now, dedicating themselves torepparttar 127070 reasonable service and to using of their gifts. To a degree they are obedient to this call, they become great.


My service is an act of self-realization, based on my self-awareness.

My service is an expression of my divine nature,repparttar 127071 Christ within me.

My service is a free gift torepparttar 127072 world, not an obligation.

My service is a seed of my fulfillment.

My service makes me truly great.
