“If we are not united to the vine, nothing of any lasting value will come from us.”
Jesus revealed that the secret of growing God’s fruit in your life is in being at home with Him. That’s the true definition of the familiar word “abide.” Listen to how He described what that means in John 15:5: “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” You grow more of God’s fruit not when you try harder, but when you stay connected to the Source. When you abide in Christ, you invite Him to live with you, not just in eternity, but each day of your life.
Think about the marriage vows. Those standing at the altar vow to share their lives with each other. They vow to live with each other. In the same way, when you abide in Christ, you share your life with Jesus.
And because of your intimate and committed relationship with Christ, He promises to care about every detail of your life. He welcomes you to draw all your wisdom and strength from Him. He invites you to share your life with Him. And according to John 15, He promises that you will grow to be more like Him over time.
You ask, how can I be more like Christ have you been deeply craving for a time out with God? Then join the Seekers Group for her South-South Solemn Assembly to enjoy a personal revival, renewal and restoration plus a deep and rich fellowship with God in addition a transforming encounter with God.
