English Sermon (09/20) – Bear Much Fruit (John 15:1-17)
The purpose of the Christian life is TO BEAR FRUIT. What kind of fruit are we expected to bear and how do we bear that fruit? In John 15:12 Jesus says, “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you” and in verse 16 He says, “…but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit”. In order to bear fruit, we must abide in Him otherwise it is impossible. Just as a detached branch cannot produce any fruit on its own, this fruit cannot be manufactured. To abide, we must lean into God by engaging with Him through the Word and in prayer so that we can bear the fruit of loving others and sharing the gospel with them.
