The Lord inspired me today to speak about growing and bearing His fruit! This is a very powerful passage because he lets us know a few important things. In John 15:1-8 God tells us that He is the true vine and that if we bear fruit, we will continue to bear MORE fruit and be even MORE fruitful!
Also God tells us in verse 4 that if we remain in Him, He will remain in us, and that alone is just so powerful and reassuring! It really leaves me in awe that Christ tells us basically “if you follow me and continue to pursue me and live like me, I will be with you wherever you are”. Honestly just having that reassurance is enough to keep me with Christ.
Another thing in verse 4 is how Christ tells us that we cannot do it by ourselves. We cannot do be fruitful and bear fruit alone through our own actions, deeds, thoughts, words, etc., unless we are in Christ!
In verse 5 Christ clarifies that his is our vine and we are the branches that feed off of him! Through Him, He’s letting us know that we can be rich fruits, however apart from him he tells us we can do nothing!
Let’s pray that Christ can really help us to bear His fruit and be humble, yet still seeking more of Him. Also let’s pray that God can truly help us see that we cannot do anything without him!
