fruit

Grafted and Budded

Speaker: Pastor Derrel Strickland

ScripturesJohn 15:1-17, Galatians 3:15-18, James 3:9-12

Summary: In agriculture, grafting and budding are two major ways of increasing productivity and producing a better crop. The Bible speaks of us as being His garden and God being the gardener. When Christ has been grafted into us and we have been budded into him it allows us to be more productive and produce fruit that will remain.

What Kind of Vine Are You?

Speaker:  Pastor Derrel Strickland

Scriptures:  Psalms 128:1-4, Genesis 49:22-26, Psalms 80:8-19, Romans 11:2-28

Summary: What Type of Vine Are You? Several times in scripture we find where God's People are referred to as vines. The type of fruit a vine bears is dependent on what they are rooted to. We, like the vines, bear the type of fruit based on who controls the inner man, either God, or Self. What time of vine are you?

Friends

Speaker:  Pastor Derrel Strickland

Scriptures:  John 14:8-17, Leviticus 3:1, Proverbs 12:26, James 4:4

Summary: Jesus is the greatest friend anyone could ever have. He loves unconditionally, is always available, sets a great example, and will never forsake us. Just like on Facebook, He has extended a friend request. We can either accept or reject, to do nothing is rejecting His invitation.
