Remain In Me


John 15: 4-5
Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

Been saying this verse out loud over my life this past week. Reminding myself that I can do nothing, yes nothing without Christ.

Just typing that tonight is so convicting and encourages me to stay close and remain in Christ. John 15 is such a practical passage and I love the imagery of the vine and branches.

Jesus is the vine, I am the branch. If my branch breaks off, I can do nothing. Yet, if I remain close to Jesus, I will bear much fruit. Not maybe, but I will bear fruit. That is so exciting.

I want to bear fruit for Jesus. I want my life to matter. I want to do something in this world that makes a difference for the glory of God…. but apart from Jesus and the vine, I am useless and can do nothing.

Let's remain close to the Lord knowing that you will bear much fruit.

How are you practically staying close to the Lord? What fruit have you been able to see recently in your life?
