We’re off a new series entitled, From Here To There (Discipleship on purpose). Pastor Neli describes how we should bear fruit by comparing our relationship with God to the relationship with others. We can all bear good fruit (Galatians5:22,23) but we must have the correct foundational root because here is no fruitfulness without His presence. When we are connected to him in the unseen we start bearing fruit with a purpose, for the consumptions of others so that they may taste and see that the Lord is good and flowing through our lives.
So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.
– Matthew 7:17-20 (ESV)
