MANY OF OUR PULPITS TODAY ARE TRYING TO TEACH THE BRANCH TO BEAR FRUIT. IT DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY. YOU SEE, YOU CAN NOT TEACH THE BRANCH TO BEAR FRUIT. THE BRANCH BEARS FRUIT BECAUSE OF THE VINE-LIFE THAT FLOWS IN THE BRANCH. NOTICE WHAT THE LORD SAID: (John 15:5). “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without me you can do nothing.”
WITHOUT THE VINE-LIFE AND THE FATNESS THAT COMES FROM THE VINE, THE BRANCH WILL NOT BEAR FRUIT.
IN OTHER WORDS, AS “BRANCHES”, WE MUST BE FED WITH THE BREAD OF LIFE, THE HEAVENLY MANNA HIMSELF. WE NEED TO FEED ON HIS GOSPEL, HIS GRACE, HIS LOVE, HIS NEW COVENANT AND HIS FINISHED WORK ON THE CROSS, SO THAT WE CAN BEAR MUCH FRUIT.
CHRIST IS NOT CALLED THE “BREAD OF LIFE” OR THE “HEAVENLY MANNA” FOR NOTHING.
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
Please bear with me for using all capital letters for my comments and small letters for my bible verses. You see, Facebook does not allow bold, italics or the use of different fonts. I tried using all caps for my bible verses and small letters for my comments, but it looked awkward. Thank you for your understanding.
