Jesus cursed the fig tree because it had no fruit. It was a symbol of
Israel. Israel was cut off because she was barren and unfruitful, and a
new branch was grafted in, which was the Gentiles. God just will not
tolerate perpetual unfruitfulness. Jesus tells us clearly why Israel was
replaced by the church to represent the kingdom of God on earth. In
Matt. 21:43 he said to the Jewish leaders,
“The kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a nation producing the fruit of it.” Even the kingdom of God is of no value if it produces no fruit. Every gift of God and every virtue is of no value if they do not produce fruit.
In the light of all this, which does not begin to cover all the stress of
Scripture on fruit, we can see why Peter makes the goal of all these
virtues the escaping of an unfruitful life. This is the worst possible fate
for a Christian to be a dead an barren branch. The world desperately
needs a army of Johnny Gosepseeds planting the trees of life in the
wilderness of the world.
Everyone dreams of owning a super moneymaking business where
other people do all the work, and their only duties involve the
approval of sales and bank deposit slips. It’s the only way to go as
a business owner. The problem is however, not too many people
seem to know how to “put together” such a business. What you’re
really talking about is an operation where you supply the product
and other people do the selling-A prime source with a dealer or
distributor network. Assuming that you have the product, you’ll also
need a sales kit and plenty of impressive, eye-catching promotional
materials. If you don’t supply or offer to supply materials with which
your sales force can sell the product, you’ll have a hard time enlisting
people to sell for you, and you probably won’t set any sales records
relative to your product either. Let’s assume that you’ve just written
Okay, in order to sell this book, you’ve got to get the word out to the
people that you have such a book available. Advertising on your own
is going to cost you money, and unless you’ve got a good
understanding of the advertising business, you may never reach your
full sales potential besides, the time and effort expended in finding the
“right” place to advertise, the placing of your ads, monitoring your
returns, and the frustrations of dealing with the curiosity seekers, will
quickly wear you out. Such is not the way you envisioned your life
when you got the idea to write the book, get rich and enjoy a life
How Can Online Blogging Be Profitable to Ordinary Christians?
Ranking of any website depends on a few factors. It would basically depend on the relevance of the article according to the key words used; the number of times that page has been linked and viewed, etc.
These are quite easy to follow, and if these factors are carefully noted and looked into, the rankings of your website can increase considerably. The first step is to get your website linked through various other pages. The more the pages are that contain your links, the better ranking they will receive. The second aspect to be kept in mind is how often you update the content on your website. Frequently edited and updated sites receive higher ranking in search engines than those that have not been looked at by the owners for ages. Always editing the content of your website as a whole may not be an option.
In this case what you can do is add a Blog to your website. A Blog will function as nothing but a forum for people to come and discuss the themes that concern your website too. It will create a platform, as well as become a journal whereby you can also post updates about your operations and your website. The advantage is that the content on such Blogs will not be restricted only to text, but pictures and videos can be posted too.
The few easy steps as described below will take you through how to create your own blog and what are the things you must look out for:
• Cost can never be a problem because free blogging services are quite popular all over the world. If you choose sites like Blogger or LiveJournal, you are sure to get exactly the kind of platform you are looking for. They are absolutely free.
• If you are not very comfortable with web designing techniques, you need not worry. Creating your blog is not as complicated as designing template for a website. These blogging services provide a wide range of templates from which you can choose the one most suited to your tastes.
• You must also use your discretion while blogging. Especially if you are incorporating your blog within your website, or creating a blog to increase awareness of your product, you need to keep in mind that this is an open forum which is read by all. You do not want to say anything that may end up angering your clients. Politics and religion are the two most controversial themes, and therefore anything about those must be carefully blogged about.
• Anything that is particularly reader friendly and does not anger too many people is considered ‘safe’. If your aim is indeed to increase the ranking of your site, you will have to make sure many people read it. You can do this by making your content user friendly.
• Also keep an eye on what other people write or say on their blogs. This can give you a general idea of what kind of responses those articles receive, and you can get valuable tips from them. Blogging has come to be considered a highly effective marketing tool. You can easily create awareness of your product and get clients and customers to interact with each other. And not only customers, also those who are relatively new to your product get a platform to ask questions and clear their air about your product. Moreover, it also increases your website rankings can increase because the blog is constantly being updates, commented on, and discussions are always going on.
Because of its sheer activity, the rankings improve, creating more awareness of the product.
