Be Fruitful – part 5

Sunday July 21, 2019

We need to remember even when covering ground that we are not standing still. Pastor Sydney Ropp read from John 15, it is the Father who prunes you.  Pastor Sydney referenced John 1:1. Stop thinking of the word as a written promise but, instead think of it as Jesus is the Messiah. Don’t let go of what is written but, it the One who said it.  1 John 5:3, what love for God is. His command is not a burden. The command of God carries within it the grace to do it. John 12:48, the word of Christ is both grace to you or judge you. 2 Peter 1, grace is not a cover up. Grace is what would make you be able to bear fruit.  supplement you faith with goodness, goodness with knowledge, knowledge with self control, self control with endurance, endurance with Godliness, Godliness with brotherly affection, brotherly affection with love. Manly, excellence, valor is the meaning of goodness. God is a Spirit of excellence. Pastor Sydney read from Romans 8:5 and Galatians 5:13. We live by the Spirit and follow the Spirit.
