Refuse to Be Mediocre | Tuesday | November 27


When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father. –John 15:8 NLT

Jesus desires that you produce much fruit to glorify your Heavenly Father, demonstrating that you are His disciple. You are meant to be profoundly effective. You are urged to “Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do…”(Ephesians 6:7-8 NIV).

Think about how you can positively influence others, putting your faith into action. Producing fruit involves much more than just praying; it requires effort. Give God your best each day.

Live out your faith, offering encouragement, showing interest, helping others as needed, and sharing your testimony. Such actions will yield a plentiful harvest. “Whatever you do, work at it with all of your heart, as working for the Lord…” (Colossians 3:23 NIV).

Strive for excellence. Do not settle for being comfortable. Push forward to be profoundly effective. Refuse to be mediocre.

Prayer Focus

1) Pray that the Lord will give you insight as to how you can serve Him today.
2) Pray for strength and perseverance to do your best in serving God.
