Questions for Reflection

Sunday October 21st

I am the True Vine

John 15:1-5


1. Bruce began his message with reference to the first of the Four Spiritual Laws:  God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life (he wants to meet the deepest needs of our soul and lead us into the most fruitful life possible)—one of the most understated assertions ever!   Why do people struggle at times embracing that principle?


2. The Heavenly Father is the gardener in each of our lives (see John 15:1).  Part of His plan is to prune us from time to time so we can be more fruitful and more like Christ.  Share a time in your life where you had the sense that God was pruning you.

4. Bruce stated that living a life that is effectively fruitful is NOT automatic—choices and decisions are involved.  What are some of those choices?

7. Who is Jesus?  He says I AM

            The Bread of Life, the satisfier of your soul

            The Light of the World, the illuminator of your heart

            The Good Shepherd, the caretaker of your life

            The Resurrection and the Life, the ultimate life giver

            The Door of the Sheep, your spiritual provider and protector

            The Way, the Truth, and the Life, the unique mediator between God and men

            The True Vine, our source of spiritual vitality


Take a few moments to give Him praise for who He is!
