Connect To The Vine

Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch cant bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me. I am the vine. You are the branches. He who remains in me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:4 WEB

The ministry of Jesus from the first recorded miracle of turning water into wine, until His resurrection was about three-and-a-half years. He took away the sins of the universe and if we let Him personally, He will takes ours. He changed the world that He lived in.

We labor each day for so many things when in reality, if we just get in tune with Him, we would accomplish so much more and it would be more fulfilling. Like Mary sitting at the feet of Jesus while Martha labored in the kitchen, sometimes we just need to sit and listen. Often though we are like Martha, making sandwiches that no one ordered and just getting tired and frustrated.

Jesus is the Vine, and it is our connection with Him that makes our own life bear fruit. I find that when I spend some quiet time with the Lord before I start my day, pray for a few minutes, read a little scripture and listen, that my day goes so much better. It reminds me of why I am doing this and that I am not just struggling alone in life. After a few minutes alone with the Lord, I am much stronger.

Always include the Lord in Your day. Remember that without Him, you can do nothing of lasting value. Taking just ten minutes to stop, pray and listen, can change your life, those around you, and the world itself.

Prayer: Father strengthen me today and cover me with Your presence. Draw my heart to You Lord and let me see through Your eyes. Use me and make my life count for Your kingdom, in the name of Jesus.
