This week Rupert Ward will be speaking to us from Matthew Chapter 7 vs 15-20. Rupert will be starting a new mini series called ‘Fruitfulness’. This week’s sermon is titled; ‘The pursuit of
more less’. Are you weary of the constant striving for more, the pursuit of something else just beyond your reach? Is there a different way to live?
As you read this Scripture you may like to consider; What strikes you? What brings clarity? What is disturbing or challenging?
15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. 18 A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.”
