What affect does listening to a message about the Kingdom (V19) (a good sermon) have upon our characters – could this be seen as the fruit Jesus speaks of ?

I think for me listening to such messages is really uplifting and encourages me to become a 'better person'.

Sounds like a good result!

I find that listening is one thing, remembering and holding on to it, allowing it to really take root is quite another.  Picking up on an earlier discussion, it is so easy to be distracted by other stuff, stuff that's often good and valuable, but still that shifts my focus.

Absolutely!

Have you found any techniques that are particularly helpful in this?

For me I rely a lot on technology:

  • writing reminders for things I need to reflect on / follow up
  • taking electronic notes linked to passages etc that I then am reminded of when I come across that passage again
  • highlighting verses / sections of books / articles

But I know this type of approach wouldn't work for everyone so interested to see what others may have come up with
