THE JOURNEY from Root to Fruit with Jesus is modeled after the way in which Jesus interacted with His disciples. It started with individuals who wanted to be different than they were. Jesus on the front end of His time with them said, "Follow me and I will make you become fishers of men." "I will make you become..." Then it began as the disciples left behind who they once were in order to become more (Matt 4:18-22). Jesus then taught them what the gospel is. He then showed them how to live it out. Then He equipped them with intentional ministry opportunities with feedback. Finally, He commissioned them to be His ambassadors in the world. This is THE JOURNEY from Root to Fruit with Jesus!!
