One of my friends posted this cartoon about John 10:27 on their facebook page yesterday. The message in it seems quite applicable in our “always on” society. If we don’t take time to listen to God, it can be awfully hard to hear him over all the “noise” of day to day distractions.
Many people have “plastic fruit” in their lives. It has the appearances of fruit…but it doesn’t taste like it.
Application: Do you have real spiritual fruit in your life? Or just look like you have spiritual fruit?
The kind of fruit God is looking for is the kind that is inside us.
A true vine implies there’s a false vine.
To abide takes purity.
