Basingstoke Salvation Army Bible Messages

Jan 8, 2019

How can you tell who is a true Salvationist? Jesus tells us there is just one way to tell a true Salvationist from a fake Salvationist.

What distinguishes a true Salvationist from a fake Salvationist is the fruit they bear. And the fruit that is first and foremost in this passage is love.

In using fruit as his metaphor, Jesus is pointing us to an important truth. A branch of a tree or a grapevine doesn’t produce fruit. It bears fruit. How do we bear fruit? It is by dwelling in Jesus.

If you want to be a true Salvationist, then love God first. Everything else follows naturally from dwelling in Christ.
