“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
I love this Scripture. I have been reading John 15 over and over that last few days and I figured I would share.
This verse is a great reminder that as we remain in Him, we can do anything! This verse also puts in perspective where exactly our blessings come from. Simply speaking, we can not do anything apart from Christ. Any talent, gifting, blessing, etc is not because of us and our doing. . . it’s from Christ.
“But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted!” John 15:7
I love this promise. So many amazing things happen when we rest in Christ. There is no down side to our relationship with Christ.
Today, whatever you may be going through, whether it is good or bad, remain in Christ. Rest in Him. Find your peace, strength, joy, and hope in Him.
Remain in Him and you will produce much fruit.
