For many, the issue of fruit bearing in the Christian life is a mere side issue, one that is perhaps the concern of the more "committed", for those who are the more "spiritual". For such, Christianity is nothing more that a one-way ticket to heaven!! Their sins have been forgiven, their names are in the Lamb's book of life; they attend Church faithfully and try to read their Bible from time to time, but when it comes to bearing fruit, their lives are barren!
This sermon brings home the awesome reality of what it is to truly be born again of the Spirit, namely the kingdom of heaven coming into the soul of a man, the result being a transformed life! We see clearly from the Word of God, that the issue of fruit bearing is not confined to a select few but is and must be the concern of all who name the name of Jesus Christ and profess to be Christians! Are you bearing fruit in your Christian life? The key to bearing fruit is in the words of our Lord; abide in me!!
