TEXT: Numbers 11:1-13

MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna 19 August 2019
Man cannot appoint himself to qualify for divine purpose. God calls a man first, works in him, and puts him into the ministry. One of the main factors determining the usability of a man by God is a circumcised heart with definite fruit of the Spirit.
God had chosen Aaron and his sons for the priesthood, but Korah and his cohorts murmured against Moses and queried the divine choice. In a reaction to this rebellion, God gave a test to the congregation. Every tribe of Israel was to bring a rod of the almond tree, and whosoever rod budded, produced flower and fruits same day is he that is chosen. That settled the matter for that which only Aaron’s rod did.
God does not use unholy vessels for His Kingdom work. You must be born again, and the evidence that you are is the fruit of the Spirit produced in your life. The fruit comes up at the moment of conversion when the Holy Spirit bears witness within you that you are born again.

Many have ignorantly argued that you mature into the fruit of the Spirit. It is not so. You do not labour for it to come nor is it true that you grow into it. Rather, it comes the moment the Holy Spirit confirms your adoption. It behooves everyone that reads this to ensure that the rod, which is the word of God, bears the instant fruit of obedience in every life so that we are not judged and condemned with the world.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Prove your new birth experience by the fruit you bear.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Job 31-36
