Last week we discussed that if we “remain” in Christ then we WILL bear fruit. The issues that cause us to disconnect from Jesus are not usually outright intentional rebellion. It is usually a slow fade due to the distractions of life. Today, we will look into the parable of the sower where we find that a crowded heart is the enemy of a fruitful life.

Based on John 15:1-12, “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 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…”

Last week we celebrated the legacy that Pastor Jeff and Darilynn began here at New Life Church. There is eternity living on the inside of us that longs to live a Godly life that will have ripple effects after we are gone. The trouble is that we struggle with what to do and how to do it. Today we are going to talk about what it takes to leave a Godly legacy that outlives your own life.

There are times and seasons for everything in our lives. The difficulty is being able to embrace the season that you are in and to recognize when it’s approaching. Whenever we come to a major transition like we are experiencing today, it is so important to slow down, look up, refocus, and discern what it is that God is doing in our midst.

Every single one of us has a story. Many times we find ourselves in a chapter of our story that we would rather not be in. At times like these it is easy to believe that our story is finished. But…our God is a God of turnarounds. If we are still living then our story is not over! Today we are looking at the story of the rich young ruler and the most difficult decision in his life…and all of our lives.
