Bearing Fruit.

I. Open in Prayer

II. Remind that February is Evangelism month

I ask that we prepare our hearts and minds for this time that has been set aside for the purpose of winning souls. I want to urge you to pray diligently for the Lord to move not just here in these walls but in our very own hearts. For it is up to us as individuals to witness, testify and bear fruit. We cannot wait for someone else to do it, our for Sunday to come around with hopes that our friends and family will come to Church. Our very lives need to be a testimony for the awesome power of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You see Hell is real and even as I am speaking to you hear right now, another soul has been dammed for eternity.

III. Christ commands that we lead others to him and bear fruit.

IV. Turn with me in your bible to

John 15:5-8 (quickview) 

5 "I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. 8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

V. >>>>> If you remain in Christ and Christ remains (lives) in you YOU WILL BEAR MUCH FRUIT (not on your own accord but because Christ is in you.) >>>>>>The very words of Jesus, If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing

VI. Jesus doesn’t stop there he tells us the other side of the story 6 If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. That is hell, the Lord is simply saying if you don’t abide in me then you will go to hell.

VII. The bible is very clear between these two verses. If you remain in Christ and Christ remains in you, you will bear much Fruit and if you do not remain in him (of course you will have no fruit) your final destination is a fiery pit called Hell.

VIII. Now Jesus gives us an extra its like the icing that tops the cake. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. Wow what a promise I ask you do you believe that? Jesus said it and I believe it. >>>Repeat>>>

You can have Freedom today.>>>> You can have>>>>> ect.

You see there is an outward sign a measure so to speak to know if we truly are abiding in Christ and Christ in us, back to verse 5 If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit.

IX. Vs. 8 says

8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

X. Look futher down to verse 16 & 17

John 15:15-17 (quickview) 

16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit-fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. 17 This is my command: Love each other.
