“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
-Branches that are in Christ & do not bear fruit; He takes away as shown in Ecc 7:17, “Do not be overly wicked, Nor be foolish: Why should you die before your time?”
-Anchored to Christ in the fruit of the Spirit; we bear fruit gradually. Just as the Father has loved Christ, He has in turn loved us. Abiding in Jesus is following His word; which makes us clean through faith. He died & resurrected by His everlasting love for us; so that we may excel in His righteousness. Our wellness & well-being has a positive relationship to His righteousness in us; for without Him we can do nothing.
We humbly come before You Father; thanking You for Your graces upon our lives. Increase our faith & love for You so that we may abide in You; in an account of righteousness. Help us in our Christian journey as we look to You, the author & finisher of our faith. Amen
