Abiding in the Lord


The Lord Jesus Christ described our relationship with God as a farmer growing fruit (John Chapter 15). Jesus said that he was the “true vine” and that we are the branches that grow on that vine. To be successful Christians we must stay connected to the true vine and allow God to shape us and work with us on a daily basis.

In John 15, Jesus uses the word “abide” seven times. He said in verse five “He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit…” To abide means to remain stable or fixed, or to continue in a place with patience. As we stay patiently connected to this true vine we receive the life-sustaining nutrients from God that we need to grow and bear fruit for him. Jesus also warns us in verse 6 that if we do not abide in him that our branch will be removed, and that we will wither and die. God’s will for us is that we “abide” in his love (verse 10), and that we experience a “full joy” in serving and fellowshipping with Christ Jesus verse 11).

Are you connected to the “true vine” today? I encourage you to get connected and to stay patiently connected to Jesus Christ. Allow God to to work with you, to correct and to purge you, and to bless you with his wonderful love and joy.
