Abide in Christ Jesus

John 15:5 says: “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without Me ye can do nothing.”

Jesus is the very source of our being. We exist in Him. He is the vine, and we are the branches. God has sent Him forth so that we might live through Him, so that we might be born again, grow, and bear fruit. Jesus is with us. We are in Him, and He is our source in life. He is the source of our love, wisdom, counsel, and strength. He is moving and giving, providing and supplying for our lives. He is making our lives fruitful. If we will simply abide in Him, stay connected, and live by the Word – that life-source that He came to give us – then we will be fruitful in every area of life.

Don’t live in yesterday!

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
