What is fruit, who is supposed to bear fruit, and how do we bear fruit? Is bearing fruit connected to our ability to stop sinning? Watch the video below, and make a list of the verses. Look the verses up in your Bible, and believe!
Do you believe what Jesus said in John 15:1-6, below? If you do then certainly it has changed your life.
John 15:1-7 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
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. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. NKJV
Many people do not believe what Jesus said in those verses, or in the least, they believe that His mercy reaches beyond their ongoing rebellion. However, when they realize that John 15:1-6 is truth, then there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth among many church goers today (Luke 13:22-28).
What “things accompany salvation, and what is God “not going to forget” according to the verses below?
Hebrews 6:9-12 But, beloved, we are confident of better things concerning you, yes, things that accompany salvation, though we speak in this manner. 10 For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister. 11 And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, 12 that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. NKJV
Disciples of Jesus Christ bear much fruit (John 15:8). For starters, they love one another, which is a form of fruit (John 13:34-35). That’s one disciple, loving another disciple, but that’s not the only type of fruit explained in the Bible.
Jesus said that by their fruit we would recognize disciples as well as imposters (Matthew 7:16, 20, Luke 6:44). However, if we don’t know what fruit is, we will not be able to distinguish between a good tree and a bad tree.
As you watch the following video, make a list of the verses and look them up in your own version of the Bible. Disciples of Jesus Christ hold to the teachings, which is another way of identifying who they are (John 8:31-32).
