Bring forth abundantly


God blessed Noah and his sons and told them to be fruitful and to multiply and bring forth abundantly in the earth. Notice how God explicitly commands man to bring forth abundantly in the earth. Abundance implies that their is an excessive degree of plentifulness.

Points to ponder:
Just as Noah and his sons were commanded to bring forth abundantly, we are commanded the same as well. We need to bring forth the fruit of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23), and bring it forth abundantly. With The Seed i.e., Jesus Christ (Galatians 3:16) who is sown in us, we must live a life that is pleasing to God, which brings forth, from within (Luke 17:21), thirty, sixty and a hundred fold (Matthew 13:23). Jesus said, that he had come to give life and to give it abundantly (John 10:10). He gave himself to us, so that we can give him to others, and bring many into the kingdom of God, abundantly. Are you and I bringing forth abundantly?

Genesis 9:7 (KJV)
And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.

Matthew 13:23 (KJV)
23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
