Preparing For Palm Sunday, Easter Sunday!

Pastor Chuck Brannon

                                            Matthew 13:44, 6:33

WHAT Shall We Do?
Bear fruit! We minister together for God's glory and man's good with excellence in mind and heart!
                           "Excellence is attained when we                                                                              care more than others think necessary,
                      risk more than others think practical,
                    dream more than others think about and
                     expect more than others think possible."

HOW Did Jesus Describe Fruit-Bearing?
Jesus said, "...Every tree is known by its own fruit. A good man, out of the good treasure of his heart, brings forth good; and an evil man, out of the evil treasure of his heart, brings forth evil."  Luke 6:44a, 45 (NKJV)

WHY Are Fruits In/For Life So Treasured?
First, the Holy Spirit produces fruit to give to us for life!
(Gal. 5:22 Philip. 1:11, Prov. 11:30, 12:14)
Second. we produce fruit to give to God and man.
(Col. 1:10, Heb. 13:15, Romans 10:8

WHO Desires Excellent Fruit For God, Man?
Natural man? Carnal/Worldly man? Spiritual man?

Daily Excellence is... doing our best, with what we have, with the people around us, every chance we get, by God's power, for His glory and man's good.
