United in Christ: Producing Much Fruit

August 19, 2018 ()

Bible Text: John 15:1-8 |


There is something powerful about how we have been united with Christ as His people. Jesus speaks of us being connected to Him just as a branch is connected to the vine. We’re united in Him, nourished by Him, and we find our purpose in Him. While unity might be something that is sorely lacking in our world, our unity in Christ speaks volumes to the world of the power of God at work in us and through us, and we believe that God will use that unity in our multicultural setting to attract people to the Gospel. Our unity in Christ is real because we are all joined to Jesus. Yet, how does God desire to make that unity more palpable? What attitudes, thoughts, and approaches need to be pruned away so that we are able to produce abundant fruit through His power?
