Morning by Morning, November 9 - "Fruit that Will Last"

Morning by Morning, November 9 - "Fruit that Will Last"
Good morning, Lord Jesus. You are the Vine and I am one of Your branches. Let Your light and life and love flow through me today, as I abide in You and You abide in me (John 15:5).  ...
"This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends. You are My friends if you do what I command you.... I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask Him in My name. I am giving you these commands so that you may love one another" (John 15:12-17).
I come to You to begin my day in the communion of prayer. I look to You; I seek Your face; I listen for Your voice; I wait in the silence of surrender to Your leading; and I rest in Your Presence. Here in the heart of my innermost being, here in the depth of my spirit where deep calls to Deep, I'm embraced by my Father, centered in Christ, and filled with Your Holy Spirit. This is where You anoint me and empower me to go out into my day to "go and bear fruit, fruit that will last."
"Fruit that will last" must be an expression of Your love. This is not the world's love; this is Your love -- "the love of Christ" (Romans 8:35). "For the love of Christ urges us on, because we are convinced that one has died for all; therefore all have died. And He died for all, so that those who live might live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died and was raised for them" (2 Corinthians 5:14). This is a love that urges me on to lay down my life for You, my Friend, and to lay down my life for the sake those You love through me. 
This is the power of Your love that changes my world. This is the power of Your love that's backed up by the authority of Your name when I ask my Father to love through me with the love of Christ. And this is the power of Your love that bears much fruit -- "fruit that will last."
Lord, I want my fruit to last. I want my life to matter. I want to know I make a difference in the moments of my day, instead of wasting my time, just going through the motions, just spinning my wheels, just living for myself and nothing that really matters. 
So empower me to love. Show me how to take the opportunities that come to lay down my life for You and for the sake of the ones You'll love through me today. I want to "know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that (I) may be filled with all the fullness of God" (Ephesians 3:19). And in "all the fullness of God" -- because I'm abiding in You and You're abiding in me -- may my life bear "fruit that will last" today. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
