WHAT ARE YOU POURING OUT?
You already have a ministry, did you know? ~ Believers and non-believers see you as a representative of Jesus, and they are curious to see how your life is different. ~ They are (consciously and subconsciously) looking at the spiritual fruit you produce and what you pour out to others. ~ So, it's not just about WHAT fruit you produce in your life... but are you squeezing that fruit so others can be nourished by the nectar? ~ Nourish = to encourage, uplift, help, and show Jesus' LOVE through our thoughts, words, actions and reactions. ~ Are you pouring out? Or filling up and holding it for yourself? ~ We are nourished so that we can nourish others - so when we hold back on pouring out, there can be a feeling of discomfort, similar to when you are uncomfortably full with water. ~ Idea: ask God to reveal to you what you're currently pouring out... and how you could show His love more. ~ Be sure to stay connected to the vine (Jesus) for your daily nourishment, and you'll have enough to share. ~ Don't wait for your ministry/calling to begin, you are living it right now: be nourished, and then nourish. ~
