How you can be fruitful can be summed up in one verse in the bible. At Welcome to the Revival we have a couple Christian t-shirts with this verse on it. One of our Christian t-shirts says, “True Prosperity” on the front and the other shirt has “It’s God’s Turn” written on the front of it.
Both of these Christian t-shirts are referring to Mathew 6:33, “But Seek Ye First the kingdom of God, and all his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” This verse is telling us to put God first and seek him first then all these things shall be added to you. So if a trial comes your way, spend your faith first, seek God first for your answer. Too many times are we trying to throw money at the issue, when we should be seeking God first on the issue. Or a trial may come up and we just keep talking about the problem and how big the problem is. We should be seeking God first and talking about how big our God is. When we do this and seek God first the word tells us that is when these things that we are looking for happen. So if you need health; seek him first, if you need peace; seek him first, if you need finances; seek him first, if you need a repaired marriage; seek him first, if you need protection; seek him first. He will provide in all these areas, we just need to seek God first. Another scripture that jumps out of the bible stating this same revelation is, Romans 10:32.
At Welcome to the Revival we have a Christian T-shirt that says, “I Like Free Things” and on the back it says, “Romans 8:32, Healing, Prosperity, Peace, Protection, Salvation.” Romans 8:32 says, “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” Again it is showing us that God, giving up his only son for our sake, will give us all things. We just have to put him first and continually seek him. The bible also says in Hebrews 11:6, “for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” This is also telling us that God rewards those who diligently seek him, this reminds me of Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added on to you. God plainly spells this out in his word what to do for all things. What does putting him first look like? It looks like spending time with God in prayer every day, it looks like going to our local church, it looks like serving at your local church, it looks like giving to the kingdom of God, it looks like winning souls to Jesus, it looks like staying hungry and fired up for the things of God. If we just focus on that first, God will make sure that we are taken care of. It is not about chasing the stuff or things in life, it’s about putting God first and then watching the stuff stick to us. A great saying is, “Judge the Fruit.” When you see good fruit on someone’s life, we know that they have put God first.
We also have a women’s Christian T-shirt with Mathew 6:26 & 33 on it. Mathew 6:26 says, “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?” Again the word of God is showing us that He wants to take care of his children. If he makes sure the birds of the air are fed, how much more his children. Come and get geared up with a Christian T-shirt from Welcome to the Revival, seek God first, and watch what He does for your life.
