A few thoughts from Pastor Mark's message at MKCC on Sunday. Image Bearers - Fruitful.
- Even when you or anyone else didn't see anything in you God intentionally chose you.
- Often we feel like we are striving not thriving - but God is at work in both these extremes to transform us.
- God is at working in your life to make you an OAK not a twig.
- You didn’t choose me, remember; I chose you, and put you in the world to bear fruit! - John 15:16
- Jesus is the only TRUE vine (source of life) not even the church can give you what Jesus can
- Every branch that does bear fruit he prunes,t hat it may bear more fruit - John 15:2 / God's plan is to make you more like him.
- When the crap hits the fan in your life, maybe don't blame the devil, & ask what is God trying to teach me.
- The Christian life has to be a supernatural life because without Jesus we have no hope of living it
- Jesus is the centre, not a priority on a list
- Abiding in Jesus love means we will love others. Love not condemnation will always be our highest goal towards others
