Jesus: The True Vine

July 4, 2021 Speaker: Darren McCormick Series: John: The Gospel Of Belief

Topic: The Gospel Of John Passage: John 15:1–15:11

Jesus used common things that people understood to teach spiritual truths.

The disciples probably wondered how to abide in Jesus while knowing Jesus was leaving.

The grapevine was a national symbol of Israel.
---Psalm 80:8-11
------Jesus stated He is the true vine.

Only the people who are connected to Jesus & have the life of Jesus producing spiritual fruit in their lives are the true people of promise.
---God promised a kingdom that would never end.
------The Jews interpreted this incorrectly.
---------They thought it would be physical, not spiritual.
---------Physical bloodline will not get you into Heaven.

1. Get connected to Jesus.
---There is no other way.

2. Understand & rejoice that our lives have meaning & purpose.
---We are here by God's design.

3. Our spiritual growth is a lifelong process.
---Our fruit should grow more fruit.

4. We need to trust God in painful moments.
---The pruning process isn't always pleasant.
------This process leads to being more productive.

5. We should praise God for any of our spiritual victories.
