Welcome everyone came to worship Sunday.
Main points for the message on Sunday (12/3): Christ our Friend and our Sanctifier – John 15:1-17
Sanctification is the next step after Salvation:
3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. John 15:3
Christ is our friend and He will tell us about the heart of the Father:
- Perfect union with Christ (v1, 4, 5, 7, 9)
- Bear fruit to glorify the Father (v8, 16)
- Experience Christ’s love and joy (9-13)
- Perfect union with the others (v12, 17)
Christ glorifies God the Father with His life. We are His disciples; when we remain in His Word, we bear fruit and we can glorify the Father.
How do we remain in Him?
- Ask (v7, 16)
- Keep His command (v10, 14)
- Let Him prune (v2)
In this special season, may we bring joy and love of our LORD to the people around
