Experiencing Christ

What a Rest to be a Branch in the Vine

Joh 15:5  “I am the sprouting vine and you’re my branches. As you live in union with me as your source, fruitfulness will stream from within you—but when you live separated from me you are powerless. 

Gal 5:22  (22-23) But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions: joy that overflows, peace that subdues, patience that endures, kindness in action, a life full of virtue, faith that prevails, gentleness of heart, and strength of spirit. Never set the law above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless. 



God’s Word also shows us that He is the vine and we are the branches. It does not say that He will be our vine and we will be His branches. We do not become His branches and He does not become our vine in the near future when our spiritual condition is more advanced. We should bear fruit the same way that He bears fruit. We should be full of virtues the same way that He is full of virtues. He is giving us all the juice, life, and power for fruit-bearing. He is the vine, and we are already His branches. He is now supplying us within with His life, holiness, perfection, and all that He is. Brothers, do we believe this? Do we believe that He is now our tree and that we are now His branches? When we believed in Him as our Savior, we were completely joined to Him… You do not have to try to do anything to join yourself to Him, because God has made you one tree with the Lord already. Do you believe that He will treat you in the same way that a tree treats the branches? you do not bear fruit for Him. Instead He bears fruit through you.

Thought Of the Day:

Christ is giving us all the juice, life, and power for fruit-bearing. He is the vine, and we are already His branches. He is now supplying us within with His life, holiness, perfection, and all that He is. You do not have to try to do anything to join yourself to Him, because God has made you one tree with the Lord already. you do not bear fruit for Him. Instead He bears fruit through you.

prayer Confession:

Dear Father Thank you for Joining me in Christ. help me live daily with this revelation that it is not I who bears the Fruits but Christ does it through me. Teach me to Abide. Amen
