Today’s Word is “I am the Vine”
John 15:5 say’s “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
Are you apart of the vine? Are you bearing fruit? If you aren’t you need to see if you are attached to the vine.
How many of you know the more you put effort and work into it just seems that things are not working? Why is that? We get frustrated because we know we are doing it right and yet it comes out wrong? It’s like baking a cake you add the correct ingredients and the cake don’t always come out the way it should or what you’ve hoped for!
Could it be that you was not directly connected to the cake? Stay with me on this I know you are thinking I’ve lost it but stay with me. See had you been renewed or born into those ingredients you would of came out with being fruitful, but because you wasn’t you can’t produce any fruit.
Jesus is telling us that if we are going to produce fruit and be successful we must stay connected to Him and we do that by talking with Him devoting ourselves to study His word and to prayer. Put Him first in our lives at all times.
Did you know that pruning produces fruitfulness? In our walk with Christ He begins to prune everything in us that is not of Him, He begins with our attitude, behavior, mouth, and hearts. He starts pruning those roots which are dead so He can give you healthy new vines so you can be stronger, faithful, devoted and loving to all people.
