Root Determines Fruit


John 15:1-5; 9-11

 Reflection Questions

1.    Guest preacher A.J. Thomas discussed a Scripture we looked at just a couple of weeks ago. On the topic of Jesus’ statement that He is the vine and we are the branches, what differences did you see in his message from the previous message? What similarities?

2.    Is there anything in your life that prevents you from producing fruit? If so, what is it and how are you dealing with it?

3.    What does it mean to you to “remain” or “abide” in Jesus? What are the practical ways you can stay connected to Jesus, so that as you find your root in Him you see fruit in your life? 

Going Further

This week, read chapters one and two of Paul’s letter to the Colossians. Reflect on its themes concerning the identity of Jesus Christ and how we can live in His fullness.
