Scripture:

We are glad you have chosen to join us today. May these verses of Scripture help deepen your experience of God this morning as well as be a resource beyond today.

John 15:1-8 (The Message)

Jesus is the Vine – Followers are Branches

15 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He[a]prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. You are already [b]clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit [c]of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so[d]prove to be My disciples.

 

"All The Way My Savior Leads Me"


All the way my Savior leads me 

Who have I to ask beside 

How could I doubt His tender mercy 

Who through life has been my guide 


All the way my Savior leads me 

Cheers each winding path I tread 

Gives me grace for every trial 

Feeds me with the living Bread 


You lead me and keep me from falling 

You carry me close to Your heart 

And surely Your goodness and mercy will follow me 


All the way my Savior leads me 

O, the fullness of His love 

O, the sureness of His promise 

In the triumph of His blood 

And when my spirit clothed immortal 

Wings its flight to realms of day 

This my song through endless ages 

Jesus led me all the way 

Jesus led me all the way 


All the way my Savior leads me 

All the way my Savior leads me

 


JESUS - The True Vine

"Bearing Fruit"

March 29, 2015

 

Warm Up:

When you think about bearing fruit as a follower of Jesus what comes to mind for you?

How does the image of a plant bearing fruit help you think about this?

 

Diving In:

 

1) As you read through John 15:1-8 what are some of the themes that have risen up for you? If you had to choose a phrase to summarize this passage what would it be?

 

2) This idea of "bearing fruit" seems to put some expectations on the Christian life. What is your reaction to that? Is that too much pressure? Or is it a natural reality of having this connection to Jesus?

 

3) What are some of the barriers or things that prevent us from "bearing fruit":

  • feel like we have to be perfect
  • timing isn't right in your life
  • don't feel qualified
  • think too big rather than "right where you are"
  • other?

4) One of the ways we seem to bear fruit is by loving others. In what ways do you find your love for others growing because of God's "bearing fruit" in you? Share any concrete examples.

 

5) In Colossians 1: 10 and following the apostle Paul describes "bearing fruit" in the following way:

    growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great                 endurance and patience, 12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you[f] to share in the inheritance of his holy people in     the kingdom of light. 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in     whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

 

What strikes you from Paul's description as significant?
