A Branch Can Never Boast

When I see a tree with an orange hanging on it, that’s an orange tree. Do you know what the fruit does? The fruit reveals outwardly the inner nature of that tree. The same is true in the Christian life. When there is fruit in your life what you are expressing outwardly is the inner character and nature of Jesus Christ. That’s what the fruit of the Spirit is.


Heaven Can’t Wait

Let’s talk about heaven as John describes it, the new Jerusalem coming down from heaven to a new heaven and a new earth. Don’t try to place it anywhere on planet earth now, because the Bible says clearly the old heaven and the old earth were passed away. We have no frame of reference with which to compare it so you just have to imagine it’s absolutely new, because that’s what Jesus says “Behold, I make all things new.”
