DISCOVERING YOUR CALL... Secrets Of The Vine
KEY PASSAGE: John 15:1-8
GOD’S DESIGN FOR US TO BE FRUITFUL
1. LAST WORDS TO THE DISCIPLES
2. FIRST INTENT IN CREATION
WHAT DO WE MEAN BY FRUITFULNESS?
We bear fruit when we . . .
1. WIN OTHERS TO CHRIST
2. HOLINESS AND OBEDIENCE
3. CHRISTIAN GIVING
4. THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT
5. GOOD WORKS AND SERVICE
THREE LEVELS OF FRUITFULNESS
1. NO FRUIT (v.2) He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit,
2. FRUIT (v.2) while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes
3. MORE FRUIT (v.2) he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.
KEY TO FRUITFULNESS IS TO BE ATTACHED TO THE VINE
The key to producing fruit requires us to be attached or ABIDING or “Remaining” in the vine... John 15:4
