1. Secret of bearing fruit: CHRIST (John 15:4-10)

John 15:4-10 (NLT)

4 Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.

5 “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.

6 Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned.

7 But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted!

8 When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father.

9 “I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love.

10 When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love.

2. Walk like JESUS did (1 John 2:6)

1 John 2:6 (NLT)

6 Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.

3. Continue in HIM (1 John 2:28)

1 John 2:28 (NLT)

28 And now, dear children, remain in fellowship with Christ so that when he returns, you will be full of courage and not shrink back from him in shame.

4. Continue in His Teachings (2 John 1:9)

2 John 1:9 (NLT)

9 Anyone who wanders away from this teaching has no relationship with God. But anyone who remains in the teaching of Christ has a relationship with both the Father and the Son.

5. Stop sinning: (1 John 3:6)

1 John 3:6 (NLT)

6 Anyone who continues to live in him will not sin. But anyone who keeps on sinning does not know him or understand who he is.
