Pruning

jn 15
Jn 15:1-3
John 15:1–2 ESV
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
John 15:1–3 ESV
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you.
Cleaning
He will get rid of the dead stuff
The dead stuff has no possibility of bearing fruit.
It is not receiving anything from Him.
Or it takes from him without being useful
The branch isn’t doing it’s job
It is taking from those branches that are doing their job.

abide

John 15:4–11 ESV
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.
jn 15:
Your purpose is to bear fruit.
Ga 5:
Galatians 5:22–23 ESV
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
The fruit c
Its all about the fruit. -love, joy, peace, patience, kindness....
The fruit is not people
You experience the fruit
You become a conduit for other receiving fruit.
spirit is in you for EVERYONE
IF you abide all goes well. If you do not it does not
This is for the glorification of God
KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS
they are given because of his love - so that you can continue to experience fruit.
they are given because of his love so that you can continue to help the world experience His fruit.

lay down life for friends

John 15:12–17 ESV
“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. These things I command you, so that you will love one another.
Jn 15:12-17
Branches - you can not leave the branches around us without detaching from the vine.
WE do what he says
We are more than mere followers, we were picked - as friends
we are more than soldiers - we are comrades and friends and our job is to keep growing comrades and friends.
we look for places t get our tendrils in there so we can provide life to the dead places around us.
we are the branches.

CONCLUSION

Galatians 5:22–23 ESV

peace chaos
kindness - meanness
goodness - evil
faithfulness - faithlessness
