Steve speaks from John 15:1-8. His challenge to us is – “Don’t focus on the fruit; abide in the Vine.” As the branches we need to get our nutrients from the Vine. God’s pruning may be difficult but it is necessary if we are to be fruitful. We need to invest in our relationship with Jesus!
From Psalm 1, Chris shows that “A Good Life” – a life that is truly blessed, comes from delighting in the Law of the Lord. Instead of drifting away from God or ignoring Him, we will find joy and strength as we focus on the Lord, drinking in His ‘living water’, just like a tree flourishing beside the riverbank!
Daniel speaks on the subject “God Speaks” a third time – this time concentrating on God speaking through His Spirit. The Spirit of God assures us, teaches us and intercedes for us! Whether God speaks to us through His Word, His Son or His Spirit (or by some other means), the important thing is our response. Will we keep in step with The Spirit?
