Who's Your One? (cont'd)

Keys to Fruitfulness - Pastor Rick

The Bible teaches us that sacrifices have to be made in order for life to be fruitful. Examples of this include the lowly caterpillar who dies to bring forth the magnificant butterfly, a seed that is buried in death to bring forth a delicious fruit tree, or casualties of war who bring forth peace, freedom, and protection from evil. Pastor Rick teaches from the Gospel of John Ch. 12 vss. 23-27 and Ch. 11 vss. 45-57. Enjoy this message as we prepare for the glorius event in history which celebrates the sacrifice of Jesus Christ who brought forth the glorious gift of eternal life for all who believe in Him.
