Life Questions
These questions are for you to consider carefully and apply to your life. Read John 15:1-4 and think about the following:
Roots: Where and how are your spiritual roots fed?
Branches: How do you ensure you stay connected with the vine?
Fruit: Who helps you prune and checks the fruit? How?
