Pre-Layer (Warm-up): The Provocative 4-play layer. We have to warm up first! -Exhort: 3-5 min. mini-sermon. The theme is found in the message. Quick story. Announce Title Pray

What’s being produced in your process?

The Tree and Its Fruit

15 “Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves. 16 You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit. 18 A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit. 19 So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire. 20 Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions.

2. My Confirmation Bias Layer: (Example: Preach them happy then get ready to punch them in the face)
Different types of Fruit!
Explanation of not from concentrate:
OUCH: Draw the first blood Example: “but”. Theater is intentional. Leads into the surgery layer. Confrontation. Gaging Relationship. Downshift / Leadershift
Our process cannot be pure if our production is manufactured.
Funny Layer:
Middle School Basketball shot and Epic Fail.
I claimed to be ready but…
I claimed to have it all together but...
I claimed to be up for the challenge of the game but when my turn to produce came I choked because I relied on me instead of the roots of training and practice that was ahead of me....
and we all make mistakes but what are we showing when the pressure is on??
Emotional Surgery Layer BIBLE LAYER: Now we go straight Nerd! GO from emotional to academic! Heart first, then the brain! Theology Layer Here!!! (Think Depth) Turn on the “Study yourself full” Example: “The real reason you” “You think you have a ___ problem”
Jesus spoke to the issue of what the tree wasn’t capable of producing… v. 17
You think you have truth problem but you have an accountability problem
You think you have an acceptance problem but you have discipline problem
You think you have a purpose problem but you have a potential problem
You think you have a fruit problem but you have root problem
See, you think you are following God but you can’t follow wholeheartedly and be the line leader at the same time
See this is why freedom and deliverance has not been branching out from you...
You may say Pastor D, yeah this message ain’t for me, but oh boo boo it is, see when was the last time you inspected your fruit??
Fruit inspection Layer: (DEMO)
Real inspection happens in your own `
Ahhh I feel God asking “Where are you?” not only where are you, but Who’s in conflict around you because you haven’t obeyed the command of the Lord!

There’s a difference between seeking (anchored) and searching (based on emotion)

There’s also a difference between produce (fruit) and production (process)

Samuel and Eli
Full Circle Layer: Altar Call. Break the Broca: you introduce a thought, then distract them, then get back to the beginning of the message!!! Stop the ability to have people follow you! Get lost in the message, you must lose them on purpose with a twist. All the layers I sowed in layer 1, I can reap in layer 7. Layers help shift the sermon in different gears! Don’t have a stick shift vehicle and never get out of 1st gear.

We’re producing out of information instead of pasteurization

I want you to take secs to praise God for new roots!!!!
DISCIPLESHIP: IE Pasteurization
Distraction! Call to discipleship
Prayer of SalvationFather, forgive me of all my sins. I Invite Jesus Christ into my heart as my Lord and Savior. I believe that Jesus died for me and Rose again so that I can live. Abundantly.I receive this free gift of salvation. Use me for your Glory Amen.
