From time to time we have to make radical choices in order to walk in the plan of God and bear much fruit as a Christian.
In order to bear much fruit we must abide in Jesus. Part of this is letting His words richly be part of our lives. If we let this happen, we will see our prayers being increasingly effective.
The final key to ‘abiding in Jesus’ is remaining in His love. By doing this we will bear much fruit. We focus on 1 John chapters 3 and 4 and review the nature of real love and how to live it out.
The key to bearing much fruit is abiding in Jesus. One of the keys to this is learning to develop a relationship with the Holy Spirit. What a way to live!!

Ecclesiastes 4 has some wonderful verses about friendship. We are not made to be on our own and here we see great value and reward from the friendships and relationships we cultivate.
