Where Do You Stand?

Have you ever heard yourself saying: “God, something about the way I’m living my life isn’t working.”


Two things we can expect when we stand in Christ…


  1. We will bear fruit


But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Galatians 5:22-23


  • It glorifies God
  • It is what the tree was created to produce
  • It is singular
  1. We will be pruned/disciplined


“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.” John 15:1-2


No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11
