Ladies – We are still looking for help with shopping for a family of five for the Village Market’s Christmas Giving Tree. Please see Pam or Diane if you’d like to help. Fruit-bearing is not a matter of being strong or weak, good or bad, brave or cowardly, clever or foolish, experience or inexperienced. Whatever your gifts, accomplishments, or virtues, they cannot produce fruit if you are detached from Jesus Christ. Christians who think they are bearing fruit apart from the Vine are only tying on artificial fruit. They run around grunting and groaning to produce fruit but accomplish nothing. Fruit is borne not by trying, but by abiding. --- John MacArthur
