What kind of tree are you? Are you and orange tree? Apple tree? Banana tree?
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.
– John 15:4 (ESV)
You know a tree by it’s fruit.
Abide in me! This summarizes the final teachings of Jesus in his last few hours on earth.
As we continue to study the book of John on Sunday mornings, we have transitioned into Jesus teaching on his enduring presence. As we live in his Spirit we will bear his fruit.
