Sermon Processing Questions:

1.  If you are follower of Jesus, then your calling and destiny is to be fruitful. In a quick look over your life, are you bearing fruit? Much fruit? Fruit that will last?

2.  For you to bear abundant, enduring fruit, God needs to make you bigger on the inside than you are on the outside. Have you let Him build your root system in secret? Explain.

3.  Where are your eyes set? Are you prepared for the long obedience in the same direction? Is your lamp flowing with oil? (Matthew 25:1-6)

4. Embrace God’s process of developing your root system by being established in trust, service, and community. Where are you at in these three areas in your life?
