We'll be meeting at the Caylor's house.  For directions, email dawnwillenbrink@mercy-road.org  or keener_jm@sbcglobal.net Community Group begins at 6:25, and ends at 8:00.

Explore (Digging in to understand the passage)
  • In verse 1, God is called a gardener, which echoes back to Genesis 2 and the Garden of Eden. What does God's role as gardener tell you about his character?
  • In verse 2, the Greek word translated "prunes" also means "cleans." How does this help you understand Jesus' statement in verse 3 that you are already clean?
  • According to Jesus, what leads to a fruitful life?
  • In verse 7, Jesus says that we can ask whatever we wish, and it will be given to us--if we remain in him. What effect does remaining in Christ have on what we ask for?
  • How do we show that we are Jesus' disciples?

Connect (Applying the passage to our lives)
  • What do you do to remain in Jesus?
  • How would you describe the fruit that your life produces?
