Connected To The Vine
Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. – Philippians 4:17.
Fruit. We are all looking for the fruit. On a tree. In a business. In a church. In your ministry.
The truth is that without being hooked up to the vine, we will never bear fruit. A branch that is lying on the ground, disconnected from the vine, does not bear fruit. However, when it is connected to the vine, it does.
Does the branch bear fruit on its own? No. Does the branch do any of the work? No. It is the vine that does the work.
The Bible says in John 15:5 that Jesus is the vine and we are the branches. When we submit to Jesus, He does all the work in our lives. We just bear the fruit.

Have you received Jesus as your Lord and Saviour? Do you believe Jesus died to pay the price for your sin? That He was raised from the dead? Then just pray aloud, “Lord Jesus, I repent of all my sins. Come into my heart and be my Lord and Saviour.” If you believed in your heart and confessed with your mouth, you are Born-again. Let us know if you prayed this prayer.
