What is the Fruit of Salvation? (part one)

Jesus speaks of four aspects of the vineyard; the vine, the branches, the fruit, and the vinedresser. Jesus is the vine. He is the one from which the water and nutrients pass along to the branches of the vine. We, the disciples of Jesus, are the branches which come off the vine. The fruit grows off the branches. The fruit grows because the vine feeds the branch. God the Father is the vinedresser. He watches over the process to make sure there is much fruit. We will see five truths about the fruit of our faith. 1) Bearing fruit is God’s aim. 2) Bearing fruit requires Jesus. 3) Bearing fruit is proof. 4) Bearing fruit brings joy 5) Bearing fruit requires going.

“In Christ” – Union with Jesus (part one)

Paul does not use the word Christian to describe who we are as believers. His most common phrase for those who put their faith in Jesus and follow Him is that they are “in Christ.” It is a short phrase that is easy to read over. But, do not undervalue the phrase's significance. Being ‘in Christ’ is the essence of the Christian experience.
Scripture: John 15:1-11

The Word of Our Testimony

MAIN IDEA: Share the word of testimony that Jesus is the Messiah so that others may know and be saved. Jesus teaches the disciples that there are priorities in life. Accomplishing God’s will is a priority. He can’t eat, He is busy eating. His food is God’s will. There are few things which we value more than filling our bellies. For Jesus, doing God’s will is one of those things.
Scripture: John 4:1-42
