The Fruitfulness of Christ

I preached at the weekend on John 15:1-17 (audio here, notes here). Afterwards, a friend pointed out that he had seen a picture of an apple tree in a magazine that had had nearly 200 different apple varieties grafted into it.

All the different apples below came from the one tree!

Here's that same tree in action. Peacefully bearing fruit in due season:

Reminds me of the church at the end of the age, with some of all the (6000 or so) different ethnic groups of the world, grafted into Jesus. And thriving in the life that he alone can give.
