THEME: Developing A Fruitful Christian Life - John 15:8
DESCRIPTION: Most of us want to live a fruitful and abundant life for God, but many of us feel that we're experiencing far less than that. In John 15, Jesus uses the analogy of a vineyard to illustrate His desire for us to live fruitful lives and to show key principles in how God moves us from where we're at to a state of 'much fruit.' Fruitfulness is an evidence of being Jesus' disciple and it glorifies God. We'll be using Bruce Wilkinson's 'Secrets of the Vine' book and Bible Study guide, plus supplemental Scriptural material to explore this theme. If you've wanted your life to become more impactful for God and His kingdom, consider investing some focused attention on this aspect of your discipleship to Jesus.
