In honor of John Chapman, who died in March 1845,

we know March 11 as “Johnny Appleseed Day.”

Although “Johnny Appleseed” is known primarily

as a folk hero in novels, stories and poems,

Chapman was a dedicated nurseryman.

He helped pave the way for nineteenth-century pioneers

by planting a series of apple nurseries

from the Allegheny Mountains to Ohio and beyond.

Jesus commented about fruit trees

when He was teaching a crowd on a mountainside.

He said that a good tree  doesn’t produce bad fruit,

and a bad tree doesn’t produce good fruit.

The way we identify a tree or a person

is by the kind of fruit produced:

A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit,

neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit

is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Matthew 7:18-20

Jesus said that His true disciples

will produce much lasting fruit

bringing glory to the Father.

John 15

GOD’S WONDERFUL PLAN OF SALVATION

Acts 16:30-31

 ”Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

And they said,

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,

and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”

Romans 10:8-13

But what saith it?

The word is nigh thee,

even in thy mouth,

and in thy heart:

that is,

the word of faith, which we preach;

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth

the Lord Jesus,

and shalt believe in thine heart

that God hath raised Him from the dead,

thou shalt be saved.

For with the heart man believeth unto

righteousness;

and with the mouth confession is made unto

salvation.

For the scripture saith,

Whosoever

believeth on Him

shall not be ashamed.

 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek:

for the same Lord over

ALL

is rich unto

ALL

that call upon Him.

 

For whosoever shall CALL upon the NAME of the Lord

SHALL BE SAVED.

**********

The plan of salvation is simple.

 Believe that the Lord Jesus Christ,

died for your sins and rose again from the dead.

 Ask Him to forgive you of your sins.

 Invite Him into your heart to be the Savior of your soul.

When you’re crying yourself to sleep,

know that Jesus is lending His shoulder to you.

When you’re pushed to the ground,

know that Jesus is holding out His hands to you.

When you feel like dying,

know that Jesus died to let you live.

When you feel like no one loves you,

know that Jesus loves you more than you can imagine.
