Jumping for Joy

Sermon Takeaways Advent 3 Jumping For Joy: Isaiah 35:1-10; John 15:2-14
4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can
you bear fruit unless you remain in me.. 5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you,
you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
 No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine.
 If we remain in Him, we have access to the life-giving, abundant fruit of The Spirit. (See Gal.5:22-23)
6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up,
thrown into the fire and burned.
 Judgment -
 Before they make a decision on their status… What do we have to look forward to “In Jesus”?
7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 This is to
my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
 We will discern the Father’s will much clearer.
 The things we ask for or focus on will be of the fruits The Spirit of God enables.
 We are bearing God’s glory and showing ourselves to be Jesus Disciples
 As we have them available and God presents them alongside our request that causes thirst.
9 – 14 “V9 -We are loved with heavenly purpose and belonging… in Jesus, as Jesus is loved.
 VV9-10 - We have the joy that accompanies Jesus in the love of the Father
 V11 -And that our Joy in the Lord would be complete, nothing else matters
 V13 - Jesus calls us Friend. How do we know? He laid His life down for us.
 V14 – Do we call Jesus friend? How do we know? If we do what He commands. Love one another.
