Message: “Remain in Jesus” from Elder Jacquie

Elder Jacquie - August 18, 2019

Remain in Jesus

JOHN 15:1-17 “REMAIN IN JESUS” Key verse: John 15:5 / Philippians 4:13/1cor 13:1-13/Isaiah 61 Objective: “A reminder that it’s all about JESUS, not me, you or us”. TO ABIDE IS: TO LOVE (to endure without yielding/ to bear patiently = Dict.) Verse 9-10/17 - Love God and Love others (Matthew 22:36-40) - To do all things with love (1 Cor 13: 1-13 / 1cor 16:14) TO OBEY: Verse 10/15-16 - A byproduct of Love (1 Samuel 15:22 / John 14:15) -To accept without objection= Dict. - Without questions (Isaiah 55:8), without seeing (Hebrew 11:1)   BUT We can’t obey what we don’t know. (Hosea 4:6) We can’t know what we need to know if we aren’t in Him (verse 15) We can’t abide because we are distracted. Our focus are somewhere else (Matthew 14:29) (1 Cor 10:23)(Psalm 121:1) TO BE (verse 2/3) = PRUNED: cleanse by God’s words (Ephesians 5:25-26) - His words will confront our deepest thoughts and fight the lies in us. (Hebrews 4:12) - His words will expose our Obedience or disobedience. (James 1:22-24) as a mirror - His words will war with our flesh (Galatians 5:17) (Ephesians 6:17) His words sets us free (James 1:25) - REWARD: Verse 16: God’s promise of “Fruit that lasts/ Galatians 5:22/ ”. John 3:16 SO WHAT: “Let’s make it personal today. “ (Isaiah 61) (Verse 16 (He ordained us)) Am I truly abiding in Christ? Am I still there?   OR am I a branch that is getting “deader and deader” waiting to dry off and drop but yet appearing alive?
