Growth in the VineyardJohn 15:1-8, 16-17

Vines are interesting

They grow differently

They need care

Direction

The right soil

The right moisture and temperature

slide3

Jesus is the vine

Movement and direction

God is the gardener

Soil, water, ties, trimming and pruning

We are the branches

The part of the vine that extends to bear fruit

slide4

John 15

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.

slide5

It sounds like Jesus is saying…

While some branches are pruned for further growth

Branches which are not fruitful, are cut off from the kingdom

If you are not fruitful you will be removed and thrown away

slide6

Setting

3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.

Consistency

We look at other part of John’s book

slide7

John 13

It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father…

2 The evening meal was being served, and the devil had already prompted Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray Jesus.

slide8

John 13

8 “No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.”

Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”

slide9

John 13

10 …And you are clean, though not every one of you.” 11 For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.

slide10

John 15

3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

slide11

You can lose your salvation

Stay close

I know who are mine family

Value the relationship

Bask in it

slide12

5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

slide13

If you stay connected

You will be able to do something important for the kingdom

Something of great value

Something eternal

slide14

6 If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.

slide15

Romans 11

16 …if the root is holy, so are the branches.

We do not live in the Old Testament

We do not and can not earn our way to Christ

We are heirs of the New Covenant

We are connected to the root and the vine or we are not

slide16

Back to Judas

One of the twelve

He walked with Jesus

Touched Jesus

Heard Jesus preach, heal and do miracles

He looked like a branch

(Believer)

But he was not

slide17

John 13

10 …And you are clean, though not every one of you.” 11 For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.

slide18

If it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck it must be a duck

This scripture says:

Just cause you look like a duck and sound like a duck it does not necessarily make you a duck

Sheep – goat (Matthew 25)

“I don’t know you”

Wolf in sheep’s clothing

slide19

7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. 8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

slide20

If you are in the family

Ask what you want…

For the kingdom

For God’s glory

For the well-being of the church

The well-being of God’s family

slide21

16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. 17 This is my command: Love each other.

slide22

I chose you

Appointed you

For something important

Be fruitful

slide23

You can not fool God

If you are not bearing fruit…

You might be fooling your own self

The very starting point

Love each other

slide24

God has a sense of humor

Love each other

Accept each other

Warts and all

This is the important beginning point

From there we can continue the journey

slide25

I chose you

Appointed you

For something important

Stay close and you will discover

How I want you to be fruitful
