How To Be Fruitful In Your Faith

Acknowledge The Source of All True Fruitfulness
John 15:1 I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.

  • John 6:35 I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger
  • John 8:12 I am the light of the world
  • John 10:9 I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture.
  • John 10:11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
  • John 10:36 Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son‘?
  • John 11:25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies;
  • John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
  • John 18:37 Jesus answered, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”
  • Revelation 1:8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “Who is, and Who was, and Who is to come, the Almighty.”
  • Revelation 1:17 Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last.
  • Revelation 1:18  I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! I hold the keys of death and Hades!
  • Revelation 21:6 He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life.
  • Revelation 22:13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

Doing Nothing On The Vine Is Insupportable
John 15:2  Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away… 

Pruning Produces Greater Fruitfulness
John 15:2  …and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. 

The Pruning Shears Are Jesus’ Teachings
John 15:3  You are already clean because of the Word which I have spoken to you. 

The Secret To Continual Fruitfulness is Faithfulness!
John 15:4  Abide (Live) in Me, and I (will live) in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. 

A Principle Repeated is a Principle Learned
John 15:5  I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. 

Straying From Jesus Diminishes Fruitfulness
John 15:6   If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 

Holding to His Teaching & Example Assures Spiritual Effectiveness
John 15:7  If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
