It’s a glorious Friday morning, Loved Ones!This is another new day to celebrate the joy of life by being enthusiastically passionate about your purpose to fulfill GOD’s plan for your life—to honor and glorify Him, to excel in your spiritual and creative gifts, to serve and produce an abundance of good fruit. Examine your life and ask yourself whether you’re being fruitful and what kind of fruit are you producing.
JESUS spoke these words in John 15:1-9 AMP…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 continues to bear fruit, He [repeatedly] prunes, so that it will bear more fruit [even richer and finer fruit]. You are already clean because of the word which I have given you [the teachings which I have discussed with you]. Remain in Me, and I [will remain] in you. Just as no branch can bear fruit by itself without remaining in the vine, neither can you [bear fruit, producing evidence of your faith] unless you remain in Me. I am the Vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him bears much fruit, for [otherwise] apart from Me [that is, cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in Me, he is thrown out like a [broken off] branch, and withers and dies; and they gather such branches and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you remain in Me and My words remain in you [that is, if we are vitally united and My message lives in your heart], ask whatever you wish and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified and honored by this, when you bear much fruit, and prove yourselves to be My [true] disciples. I have loved you just as the Father has loved Me; remain in My love [and do not doubt My love for you].
Prayer: Thank You, FATHER, for Your words that pertain to our life in You. May we participate in the joy and delight that comes from being vitally united to You through JESUS, the True Vine. Amen
