Sermons about Fruit
Miles Valley concludes his two-part sermon on the crucified life by heeding us with what it means to bear fruit for God and how the crucified life will ultimately be the good work and beautiful thing that God intends us to experience.
In our passage, the Apostle Paul gives a prayer for how our lives ought to be when Jesus matters most. Consider the incredible difference Jesus makes in one’s life!
In John 15:1-11 we see that Jesus categorizes 2 types of people. First, he shows there are some that believe they are part of the Vine but bear no fruit. These will be cut off and thrown into the fire. The other group are those that do abide in the Vine, yet he often prunes them so they will bear more fruit. Listen as we see that the goal is not to make ourselves a branch that bears fruit, but to be overwhelmed by the satisfaction and nourishment found in the Vine alone.
We begin a new series on the book of Colossians called “What Matters”. All of us have people or things that matter to us. What matters to us shapes how we live and think. In Colossians, we are told that Jesus ought to matter above all. If so, how should this effect the way we live and think?
The river is the church, and God uses the church as the life giving water that flows east to all humanity.
Preacher: Pastor Tony Simpson. Passage: Galatians 5 vv16-26. As Christians we have been made alive by the Spirit of God and are indwelt by the Spirit. We are able to choose to do what is good and pleasing to God when previously all we did was sin. However a battle rages within and we must choose constantly to live by the Spirit in order to produce the fruit of the Spirit. We must also be aware of the danger of pride as we see how we have progressed in becoming more like our blessed Saviour Jesus Christ.
In this message, we consider how Jesus is the vine and we are the branches. If we are connected to the vine, there will be fruit. What or to whom are you connected to? Do you desire to bear fruit in your life? Consider what Jesus says.
