Fruit of D'Vine is the name of our monthly newsletter, based upon the biblical truth that each Christian is a “partaker of the divine nature” (2 Pet. 1:4-KJV), and that those who abide in Christ, the Vine, and are thus living truth, will bear godly fruit just as he did.
True Christianity is Simply About Being in Love
February 2019If you are married, I hope you are still “in love” with your spouse. As Jesus showed us, LOVE=GIVING. Do you remember the early days of your budding romantic relationship when you sang the Rock & Roll classic, “When I woke up this morning, you were on my mind…”? The sky looked bluer, the sun shown brighter, and the nagging minutiae of life didn’t bother you as much. And, because you had found your partner, even the heavy duty situations were easier to deal with. One result: you could not keep your mouth shut, and you constantly raved about the love of your life to anyone who would listen, and some who wouldn’t.
“Maybe, Just Maybe, God Can…”
January 2019First of all, JOYOUS NEW YEAR!!! PerHAPS this year some bad things will HAPpen to you. In fact, you will most likely have some misHAPS and therefore may not always be “HAPpy,” but manifesting THE JOY OF THE LORD is our choice, no matter the circumstances.
When we launched The Living Truth Fellowship in early 2010, we very specifically chose the name that describes our overall goal: to LIVE God’s TRUTH, not just to know it. In God’s amazing grace and mercy, He has opened His Word to us in great depth, but, as per the following verses, we must ACT on it day by day in order to bring forth the fruit He desires in our lives.
How's Your Fruit Account
December 2018God bless you SUPER-abundantly! The main “takeaway” truth from this last letter of 2018 is expressed in the following verse, which debunks today’s independent, self-made-man mindset so prevalent in our western culture and orients us to our Heavenly Father as the source of all good things (Ps. 84:11).
Some Keys To Spiritual Perseverance
November 2018That appellation sounds good, but what exactly does “stalwart” mean? Good question. “Strongly built; sturdy and robust; strong and brave; valiant; firm, steadfast, uncompromising.” Plenty of verses in God’s wonderful Word support those definitions as to who He has made you to be as His child and a minister in the Body of Christ. Yeah, I know, now all we gotta do is live up to them. Easier said than done, but certainly attainable, with the Lord’s help.
