‘Fishers of men’ (Ez. 47) by @newnaija #LAFruits Devotional


Reading: Ezekiel 47, Psalm 114

Fruitful Fishers Of Men!

TEXT: “And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be very great multitudes of fish because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes.” (Ezekiel 47:9 NKJV)

As the year is rounding up, you and I need to be mindful of bearing fruit for God especially in the area of soul winning. We are meant to bring joy to heaven by winning souls for God (Luke 15:7). And for us to be effective soul winners, we first need to surrender our lives to God.

Looking at the vision given to Ezekiel, we see from the various levels of yielded-ness typified by our walk through the river. At ankle length, we are still in charge of our lives, at knee level, we still struggle to have our ways. Then we proceed to waist level where the Spirit has the upper hand since we cannot move as we want again. Afterwards comes the overflow level where it is no longer us but HIM that leads.

The overflow level is the realm where we become fruitful. The Spirit moves us, and everything we touch comes alive; every deadness begins to give way as the life-giving water starts to heal everything we touch.

LEARN and APPLY: Christ is calling you and me to that place where our evangelizing will not be humanly (flesh) driven but spiritually driven. And for us to bear fruit, we must surrender our lives to Him. He wants to be both God and Saviour to us.

Lord grant me the grace to surrender the leadership of my life to you totally. Not my will Lord, but your will always and all the time be done. Amen
