1 John 4:7-12 & John 15:1-8 / Pruning the Vine

Lugarno Peakhurst Uniting Church http://lpuc.org.au

Welcome note

Jesus told a story about a gardener whose vines were growing bigger and longer. Vines are what grow grapes, although the problem with this vine was that the juicy grapes were so hard to find and there was tiny sour, uneatable grapes on the vine, and if the gardener was going to get some good grapes, he had to cut back the vine, to make room for good grapes to grow. And in time, they turned out to be his best grapes ever.

Sometimes we need to declutter and get rid of all the things that stop us from growing.

We need to get rid of some of the things that stop us learning new things and that includes learning new things about God.
