Harvest Bible Fellowship

David brought the lesson this week in John 15. Jesus told his people that the expectation is that they bear fruit, such as the fruits of the spirit (love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control). The assumption is that if you are in Christ then you are bearing fruit and occasionally need to be “trimmed” or disciplined. Those that are not bearing fruit are those who are not in Christ and Jesus said they are to be burned (reminiscent of hell maybe?).
Jesus then gives instruction. Obey his commandments. This is one of the biggest ways we can remain in Him. He then says Love one another. This admonition is something that is tough for most people. David used the example that we are willing to say that we will take a bullet for our family and friends, but when it comes down to little things like taking out the trash or a small sacrifice like that, then we complain and do not love one another. Why are we so selfish in the little things, but say we are willing to act unselfishly in the big things?
Application-Love one another, especially your family and friends in the small things. Don’t be selfish. Remain in Him by obeying his commandments, especially the commandment Jesus delivers in this passage to love one another.
