     What I got today from Jesus is: This is being fruitful

    What I received from Jesus today is a colourful picture showing what is being fruitful. Paul intended to give the Corinthians a good and warm conclusion of his letter. In order to remind them of what he said from chapter 1 to 15, he gave them the following examples to be fruitful:
1. Reconnect to making offerings
    Due to the confusion in the church at Corinth, they might stop to make appropriate offerings to other churches and the HQ in Jerusalem and Antioch. Paul encouraged them to be reconnected to that duty.

2. Reconnect to fellowship with other leaders
    They might cut all connection with other leaders due to their pride and bitterness. Paul encouraged them to learn from him of how he was being connected to a wide spectrum of fellowship with lots of Christian leaders.

3. Reconnect to God's love
    Paul reminds them of how important it is to love God and others.

So, are you being disconnected lately or making more connection into a bigger family of our Lord Jesus Christ? How are you willing to make offerings to your church and beyond? 

You want to be fruitful? Well, this is being fruitful! 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to be connected fully into your body.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
