This song was mentioned at the end of the sermon.
God wants us to be fruitful. For this to happen we have to be pruned of the sin which damages our relationship with God.
Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
Remain in me as I remain in you … (v4). Connecting, depending, continuing.
Before we can work out what good works we can do for God, we need to understand that we are God’s restored masterpieces.
‘Whatever me lot, it is well with my soul.’ God loved us in the past, loves us in the present and will keep on loving us in the future.
Is my sense of identity based on how I or others see me and does this drive me or can I see myself as God does? We are dearly loved children trying to imitate God and living a life of love.
‘And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.‘
Would my faith be stronger if my dreams had become reality?
As we approach our AGM, this passage reminds of all God has done for us. Others share their stories of what God has done over the past year. We look forward to what God will do this year, following John 15:5.
