Fruitfulness comes from Intimacy,

Fruitfulness: Producing fruit. b. Conducive to productivity; causing to bear in abundance: fruitful soil. 2. Producing something in abundance; prolific:

It’s good to be fruitful. It’s good to be able to reproduce. But how do we become fruitful? Do we work hard and stay disciplined? That’s what religion would tell us. Work; work; work; that is the mantra of the religious, both in the church and in the world. But that’s not really the truth, is it? No, the truth is that fruitfulness comes from intimacy.

Think about it for a minute. One of the best things to remember is to look at what is going on in the natural. I know that if we look at the natural we we able to discern a lot about the spiritual. In the natural, fruitfulness is directly connected to Intimacy. If a Husband and wife don’t spend time with each other there will never be any fruit. It’s an easy equation. Time together means more fruitfulness, while a lack of intimacy will leave them barren, without fruit. It seems that many of us, wind up trying to work up fruitfulness instead of staying close to the Holy Spirit.

Papa wants us to be fruitful in our ministry and in all of our lives, but more than that, He wants us to walk in a deep level of intimacy with Him. He is more concerned with us and our love for Him than He is with our fruitfulness. Papa is calling us to a life of intimacy with Him and in songs that have yet to sing . Papa wants everyone to use whatever means so do .
