March 22, 2015 message: “Knowing God’s Power”

As Jesus prepares the disciples for his departure, he offers the image of the vine and branches to remind them that he is the source of strength for them.  What does it look like for us to let Jesus be the vine?  How do we understand Jesus’ words about “cutting away” both in terms of pruning for growth and removing dead branches?

Today’s message, “Knowing God’s Power,” based on John 15:1-8, is the fifth in the series of messages based on the book, The God We Can Know by Rob Fuquay.  The book explores the “I Am” statements found in the Gospel of John.  For a visually inspiring take on today’s “I Am” statement, watch “The True Vine.”
