  • A message from the Paster

    John 15: "My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples.

    The last few weeks I have been mediating of this verse and it came to me that the Lord desires for all that we do should be done to glorify his name. What does this look like to the Lord? He gives us the way glory is to be given to Him- that you bear much fruit.

    I believe several ways we bear fruit:

    1. We bear fruit by sharing the gospel both in how we live and verbally. It does not accomplish much if your life does not measure up to the words you are sharing. Now the question comes how many have you shared the gospel with in the last year? If you haven’t shared the gospel, are you really bring glory to the Lord? Now would be a great time to recommit to sharing the gospel.

     

    1. We bear fruit that glorifies the Lord when we are more concerned about traditions than the Word of God. Now some traditions are wrong but I believe each decision that a church makes must be authenticated not by how we feel but what does the Word of God have to say about this.

    Years ago, a church in Southern Illinois called a pastor and everyone was excited. The church began to grow. The church was filling up but no one was sitting a group of pews. The pastor found out these pews had set empty for years. This disturbed him because they needed the space. He began to research the church minutes and found the answer. (During the great depression the roof over these pews began to leak. Water was dripping on these pews. Unfortunately, the church did not have the money to repair the roof. Instead the placed a tarp over those pews. This continued through WW 2. Finally, they were able to replace the roof. But no one would sit in these pews. Tradition said no one set in them.

    Many times, we have the attitude we have never done it that way before. That has a lot to do with traditions. That type of attitude quenches the work of the Holy Spirit and prevents the growth of the church. Don’t allow your view of traditions cloud what the Word of God says! Focus on the Word of God not traditions.

     

    1. We bear fruit by the way we use our spiritual gifts and talents. One can use those gifts to draw attention to themselves or the church and not bear fruit. But when you use those gifts to advance God’s kingdom here and abroad then that bears fruit.

    What is the result of bearing fruit? Folks are added to the Kingdom of God, the name of Jesus is lifted up, and the local body of baptized believers grows. Are you bearing fruit?
