Are You Connected?
ARE YOU CONNECTED?
Are you truly connected to your source of power? The answer to that question will determine how you live out your values.
1“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. 3You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. 5I 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. 6If 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. 7If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples.
In these 8 verses, John absolutely gives us the key to ____________________________ _____________________ together.
The vine is not capable of producing a good crop without _________________________.
The vine is actually the ____________________________________ that grows out of the ground.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control. Against such things there is no law” (Gal. 5:22).
There are four things we can take away from this:
- If you haven’t trusted Jesus as your Personal Savior, you are not even ________________________________________________.
- If you belong to the body of Christ, and your life consistently bears no fruit, you can expect __________________________ by God.
- If you are bearing some fruit in your life, expect God to _________________________.
4. If you are bearing a lot of fruit in your life, you will be fully living out the values of _______________________________________________________________________.
