Sermon Message & Study Guide for 2/25 to 3/4/2018


As followers of Jesus, we are called to change the world. As a church, we feel this is accomplished by getting “Rooted” in the Word of God, growing as a disciple of Jesus, and blessing others with that with which we have been blessed. But if we are going to fulfill God’s purpose in our lives we must have a growing relationship with Him.


This new series will help us understand our roots in Jesus so that we can continue our transformation in Him.




How has your physical family helped influence who you are today?


Read John 15:1-5

1       What does Jesus mean when He says, “Remain in me”?

2       We determined “remain in me” means having a true relationship with Jesus, what does that relationship look like?


Read John 15:6-11

3. In this passage, Jesus shared 11 times to “remain”. We know it is extremely important to remain in Him. How do we remain in our relationship with Jesus?


Read John 15:12-17

4. When we remain in Jesus and have a true relationship with Him, what happens in our lives?


Read Galatians 5:22-23

5. What do some of the fruits described in this passage mean to you, and how can you apply them to your life?


Next Steps: Our roots determine our fruit. So as we begin this journey together, ask yourself, what are you rooted in? We’re all rooted in something, what is it for you?

•        What are you rooted in?

•        What are you remaining in?

•        What fruits are you experiencing?

•        What fruit is coming out of your life?
