Personal holiness John NIV If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. Remaining in Him is more than just spending time praising Him and praying to Him. The verse above tells us that it also involves His word remaining in us. We have to know His word and this word has to remain or make an impact in our lives.
It is not just in through one ear and out the other. Do you have a regular time of reading God's word and is the word making an impact in your life?

Have you been making changes to your life on the basis of what you read in the Bible or is it all head knowledge? Why is personal holiness so important in winning souls? Because if we have a bad character, people will look at us and do not want to be Christians.
The Joy of Fruitfulness
Now remain in my love. John NIV If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love. Finally remaining in Him also means remaining in His love. When we remain in His love, He blesses our tasks and we become fruitful. We remain in His love by obeying His commandments. Have you been allowing God to correct your life? Do you have a regular time of confession and making your life right before God?
Illustration A criminal was caught and sent to prison. While there, he heard the Gospel and became a Christian. His life completely changed. Because of good behavior he was released earlier. As he was leaving, the chaplain handed him a letter written by another prisoner.
It said, "I came to this place despising both preachers and the Bible. When you told me you were saved, I said to myself, 'There's another one pretending to be a Christian just to get an early parole'; but I've been observing you for a couple of years, and your testimony is true. I kept track of you when you were in the yard exercising or working in the shop or eating your meals.
Now I'm a Christian, too, because I watched you!
The Savior who saved you has saved me! John NIV I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. We are not servants who carry out tasks without knowing what the master has in mind.
Jesus considers us His friends and He wants to make known His Father's strategy. God wants us ask Him to show us His strategy on how we can be more effective in winning souls for Him. Illustration One Sunday a preacher was preaching.

He told his congregation, "Anyone who is really saved can win souls. How can I possibly go out to win souls? Do the milkman, the grocery boy, the paper boy, and others ever come to your home? When the milkman came, she said, "Are you a Christian? Before the year had passed, this woman had led fifty souls to Christ. If we do not know how to win souls, we have to ask God for the strategy.

Maybe we have a father who is stubborn and does not want to talk about Jesus. Or we may have a friend who had been hurt by Christians and do not want anything to do with Christianity. We are only successful if we follow the strategies of God. Jesus was successful because he was only doing what the Father is doing. Many times we make plans and ask God to bless them.
A better way would be to ask God to show us His plans and we just obey them. Ask for souls John NIV You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit--fruit that will last. It is not surprising therefore, that one of the utmost longings of every human being is to be fruitful — biologically and otherwise. The theme of fruitfulness and the related concept of multiplication are repeated all through the book of Genesis:. To be fruitful means to be productive with what God has given you. Therefore fruitfulness is the potential destiny of every seed.
Any seed that does not result in fruit is a wasted potential. The above scriptures however indicate that Fruitfulness has both divine and human dimensions and responsibilities.
