“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”
Revelation 22:16 (NIV)
World Changer: If Christ is not our root, our fruits will be bad although we try in the natural and in our own strength to make them good. We must not allow the world to entertain us in its bad decisions because according to the Word, the children of God have been called to announce the good news and bring to this fallen world the only hope they have to be saved and that is precisely to have faith in Jesus.
When we read the Gospel we realize of the strong opposition of all against the message of Jesus. At that time the Roman Empire was full of perversion and corruption and yet Christ never stop to attack what Rome did wrong but He dedicated Himself to preach so that the hearts of the people would be purified and they would give their lives to God.
It means that the root of the problem of what we are currently seeing is that the world is moving further and further away from God and they have false expectations that one day everything will change and it will be beautiful, but those of us who have been born again and now we see clearly, we realize that things are getting worse because the fruits are worse every day. However the fruit will not change no matter how hard we try unless the root can be healed.
*Now, Jesus declared: that He was the root and lineage of David, so the only tree we can eat from is the tree of life that produces the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5: 22-23).
Only Christ and His Word can heal a fallen world.
Today is your day for Christ to be your hope of glory and your world-changing victory (Romans 10: 8-13, Colossians 1:27, 1 Corinthians 15: 10,57). Hallelujah.
