Summary: This message is to inspire belivers to witness and share their faith.
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
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
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.
Have you been chosen if so you are appointed to bear fruit. Once again Jesus gives us an extera Then the father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
Are you missing a blessing do you wonder why some of your prayers are not answered. Are you bearing fruit or do you just have a form of Godliness?
Do you abide in Christ and dose he abide in you if he dose you will bear fruit.
If not You need Jesus. He is the way the truth and the life, He came to give life and to give it more abundantly. He came to set the captive free.
I am here today and I testify that I have seen >>>>>>>>>
All by the power of Jesus Christ.

When Adam begins to play the Alter will be open if you need to commit to bearing fruit, please come, If you need prayer or would like to move your membership come, If you need Jesus to save your soul do not let the enemy steel this opportunity for we are not promised tomorrow you come and be delivered today Jesus will set you free.
