I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

"BEING FRUITFUL" BY DAVID MCMILLEN

BEING FRUITFUL



ARE YOU BEARING FRUIT?  IF YOU ARE BORN AGAIN YOU SHOULD BE. JESUS SAYS YOU ARE A BRANCH AND HE IS THE VINE. IF YOU ARE NOT ABIDING, OR CONTINUING PERMANENTLY, WHICH IS WHAT ABIDING MEANS, IN THE VINE, THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN BE FRUITFUL.  HERE IS WHAT JESUS SAID IN JOHN 15:4-5 "Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing."  WE LOOK AT THIS AND SAY, THIS IS GREAT, BUT IS IT?  IT IS IF WE ARE BEARING FRUIT.  WE KNOW THAT JESUS IS ABIDING IN US FROM WHAT HE SAYS ABOVE BUT ARE WE ABIDING IN HIM.  I PUT THE DICTIONARY DESCRIPTION "CONTINUING PERMANENTLY" TO PUT A LITTLE MORE POWER TO THE WORD ABIDE.




AS A BRANCH, IF WE ARE NOT CONTINUING PERMANENTLY IN THE VINE, WE ARE "cast forth as a branch, and is withered." HOWEVER, IF WE DO ABIDE IN HIM THERE ARE REWARDS.  JESUS TELL US THIS IN JOHN 15:7 WHERE HE SAYS "If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you."



WE NEED TO KEEP HIS WORD STRONG IN OUR HEARTS AND KNOW WHAT HE WANTS US TO DO AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF WHAT HE HAS PROMISED. HE TELLS US THIS IN PROVERBS 4:20-22 WHERE IT SAYS "My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh."  IF WE KNOW HIS WORD, THEN WE KNOW HIS WILL AND HE WANTS US TO TELL PEOPLE ABOUT HIM AND WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR US.  HAVE YOU TOLD ANYONE ABOUT HIM THIS WEEK? 



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
