Description

The Bible is full of metaphors, parables and illustrations that use plant life as an access point to understanding spiritual principles and processes. I examine what the natural world of flora can tell the Christian about how he or she relates with God, with him/herself, and with others.

Bear Fruit John 15:4-5

A Strong Root System • The function of roots: stability and nutrition • John 15: 1-11 – God’s goal: raise healthy fruit-bearers • Psalm 1 – To thrive, we need the essentials – Lack of essentials leads to chaff

The Ripening Process • Ripening = our growth. This is an intentional process, doesn’t just happen on its own. • Mark 4: 3-8 – A new view: we are sowing our faith • Luke 13: 6-9 – God’s patience is meant to lead us to fruit-bearing obedience (Rom. 2:4) – A Christian is useless if you don’t find Christ.

A Fruitful Goal • God has created us as He did trees: to bear fruit befitting our nature (Gen. 1:11-13) • Our fruit: evidence of Jesus’s work in our lives (Galatians 5:22-23; Hebrews 15: 5-6) • We CANNOT yield opposing fruits; no such thing as hybrid plants in God’s kingdom – Matt. 7: 15-20; James 3: 10-12; Prov. 14:14

A Cycle of Growth • We must take advantage of the seasons of life to root, ripen, reap and repeat. • Perfect example: the tree of life (Rev. 22: 1-2) • Continuing to bear fruit is a process of sanctification - Rom. 6: 20-23 - Phil. 1: 9-11 • Our fruit  others’ fruit (1 Corin. 3: 5-9)

God’s Plan of Salvation • • • • • • Hear Believe Repent Confess Be Baptized Live Faithfully – How is your spiritual yield? –
