Stay Connected to the Vine

In John 15:1-2, 4-5, Jesus is talking to the disciples before he is arrested.  He tells them this:

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes[a] so that it will be even more fruitful...Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."
If you try to succeed in your own power or drift away from daily connection with God, you will fail because you aren't connected to our life source - Jesus!  

Colossians 2:6-7
"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him,rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness."

  1. One of the things I declare and claim before heaven and earth daily is that I get my prayers answered and am fruitful BECAUSE I'm connected!!!!
