John 15:16 (KJV) 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 to you.

While preparing a sermon some days back, I tried to list some of the factors responsible for unanswered prayers. There are a couple of them and they include sins, doubts, praying amiss, unforgiveness, and lack of persistence or consistency in prayer. One prime factor emphasized in the Old Testament was sin. In the New Testament, Jesus also laid emphasis on faith deficiency and doubts being hindrances. Also, in today’s Bible text, Jesus says that when we bear fruit and our fruit remains, we will have answers to our prayers. Unfruitfulness creates a hindrance to our prayers. Unfruitfulness is when we are not producing the fruit of the spirit as children of God (see Gal 5:22-23). The fruit of the spirit has to do with Christian character; how do we treat people? Christians are to be people of faith and people of Character.

Fruitfulness also has to do with being faithful in the assignment the Lord has given you in the kingdom; you do not exist just to meet your needs here on earth.

Go into the world today with a determination to be fruitful as you do the things of the kingdom.

Prayer: Dear heavenly Father, help me to take the business of God's kingdom more seriously, in Jesus' name I pray. Amen
