What Would Jesus Say? John 15:5 September 10, 2023 Jesus said, “I am the Vine, you are the branches,” He is the source of life. A branch cannot survive, let alone bear fruit, without the vine. The fruit Jesus speaks of is not good deeds or moral behavior, rather the character traits developed by the Holy Spirit. Galatians 5:22 The power of the Vine changes us from the inside out. When we abide in the Vine we are not improved versions of our old selves. 2 Corinthians 5:17 This power gives strength to endure, peace to remain calm and hope to keep pressing on, in the middle of the storm. This power is freely given to all who choose to accept it. Remaining connected to the Vine, Jesus, is not a one-time decision, but a daily commitment. We stay connected through prayer, the Bible, and relationships with other believers. What does this fruit look like? Love: Mark 12:30-31 John 13:34-35 Joy: Galatians 5:22 Peace: Philippians 4:7 Patience: Colossians 3:12 Kindness: Romans 15:14 Faithfulness: 1 Corinthians 4:2 Gentleness: Ephesians 4:2 Self-Control: 2 Peter 1:5-7 Good Works: Matthew 5:16 Ephesians 2:10 Being connected to the Vine produces real fruit over a lifetime. This is a marathon, not a sprint. 1 Corinthians 9:24
