Jesus is Looking For Fruit

Jesus is Looking For Fruit John 15:1-17 Main Point: Jesus is looking for lasting fruit in us: love, obedience, and reaching out to others. *v.16 He chose us we did not choose Him – to bear lasting fruit! He loves and impacts people through us. Jeremiah 2:21 We will bear lasting fruit as we: 1. Remain(abide) in Christ and keep His Word remaining in us = stay connected to the true source of our life (verses 5,7,9) To ‘remain’ means to fully live in (as a house) v.5b apart from me you can do nothing! His Word remains in us as we meditate on it and hide it in our hearts. (Psalm 119 verse 11, verse 97) Colossians 3:16 2. We obey His commands, the greatest of which is to love one another! (verses 9-17) v.12 Love one another as I have loved you! (others are drawn by the love we have for one another!) > I John 4:7-8 Ephesians 2:10
