The BEST Fruit's at the End of the Limb

"When was the last time you put off fear, doubt, and distractions, and 'went out on a limb' to pursue something you know God has waiting for you?"

When was the last time you "went out on a limb" or, as we often hear Christians saying, "stepped out in faith"? Is it past time that you turn loose of fear and doubt, go out on a limb to make Jesus Christ the deepest desire of your heart, and taste and see what is... "The Best Fruit at the end of the limb"... Abundant Life w-i-t-h Him?

            For you, "going out on a limb" could mean turning loose of fear and doubt by taking the courage to share your love for Christ Jesus with unbelievers. Or it could mean you find the courage to ask your boss for a much-needed promotion and raise. Or, it could also mean being courageous in leaving a church or ministry group that is steeped in religion, so you can plug in to one that puts the entire Word of God into practice."

            No matter what, as you "go out on a limb" in pursuit of real Life with Christ, the alarming sound of "cracking" from that limb is always an indication that abundance lies ahead, "at the end of the limb". It is important to resist and overcome any belief that the "cracking" represents impending doom. Keep going! Keep focused!

            The BEST is YET to COME!

            In the business world, "the risk-takers" eventually become "the money-makers"! In our Life IN Christ, that same principle also applies. If we truly want to Live the Abundant Life that Jesus came to provide for us, we need to turn loose of fears and doubt and our place of comfort in life, climb out on a limb to make Jesus Christ our heart's deepest desire, and shimmy our way to the end of that limb where we'll find "The Best Fruit" to be!

            Remember John 10:10, "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."

            If you haven't invited Jesus Christ into your heart to be your Lord and Savior, right there where you are, say this prayer to God. "Father God, in the precious Name of Jesus Christ, the King of kings and the Lord of all lords, I lay my life at Your Feet. I come before You, confessing that I am a sinner, and I ask for You to forgive me of all my sins - those that I know I have committed, as well as those that I am not even aware of.  I ask that You come into my heart and be my Lord. I lay my life, and everything in it, at Your Feet, and ask that You please take me and begin to change me to be like YOU. I ask that You redeem the time that has passed, and allow me the opportunity to become exactly what You have predestined me to be, from before the foundation of the earth. I commit my life to You now, and thank You for receiving me as Your own. In the wonderful name of Jesus Christ, the son of the Living God, I pray, Amen."  And AMEN!!!

            WELCOME HOME!

            If you have just prayed this prayer we want to congratulate you for making the greatest decision that you can ever make! By accepting Jesus Christ, or rededicating your life to Him, as your personal Lord and Saviour, you have begun the wonderful process of being grafted into the family of God, and we welcome you home. We would like to invite you to contact us so that we can send you information that will help you begin growing in your relationship with God. We would also encourage you to begin attending a Holy-Spirit-filled, Bible-believing church right away.

            We advise you to begin reading The Holy Bible daily, whether you understand it or not. Always remember, God's written Word in The Holy Bible is like no other book that has ever been written! When we rendezvous with The Person of The Holy Spirit as we read what God has written there, it becomes stored in our heart for The Holy Spirit to access it to bring to our remembrance.  You will find that the Scriptures will become applicable to whatever you are going through, at any given time!

            There are wonderful Bible teachers on television and on the radio that can, especially early in your walk with God, help you to begin receiving good teaching, and encouragement, right away. Although very informative, these programs are never to be a substitute for close relationships with people who love and serve God. At times, the transformation process that you have now begun will be difficult, and you will be tempted to go back to your old ways of living your old life. It will be during times like these that hanging out with strong Christian friends and mentors will be crucially important. There really IS strength in numbers!

            CONGRATULATIONS!!! We would like to welcome you into the Family of God... right where you "belong", and always will! (Selah)
