Matthew 7:15-20; Colossians 1:9-14; Romans 6:15-19; Hebrews 10:19-25
I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
Everyone who abides in Jesus, actively pursuing to stay connected to Him through knowledge of and obedience to His Word bears much spiritual fruit for Him. Jesus is the way we fulfill the mission that God has given each of His followers.
Part of the beauty of the gospel is that God does not just rescue us from the power of sin, but He is also mak- ing everything new. God offers new creation to those who place their faith in Jesus. This newness comes in two ways. The first is that by breaking the power of sin, Jesus is making men and women into brand new people with new identities. Second, God is not only making people new, but He is also going to make a new heaven and a new earth for us to live on and worship Him in.
