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?
Why does it seem that the more effort you put into a thing it seems like things are not working? Why is that? Do we get frustrated because we know we are doing it right and yet it comes out wrong? It is like baking a cake you add the correct ingredients, and the cake do not always come out the way it should or for what you have hoped!
Could it be that you are not directly connected to the cake? Stay with me on this I know you are thinking I have 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 were not you cannot 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.
Always put Him first in your life. 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 and I healthy new vines so we can be stronger, faithful, devoted and loving to all people. AMEN
Have a bless day today.
