Remaining to Bear Fruit
Scripture: I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
Observation: Remaining in Jesus is to do what he commands me to do. He has shown me how to live this life with obedience to God the Father and with love caring for the needs of others above my own. If I continue to be obedient I will be able to bear fruit for my Lord because I will be in His will. To determine the things I need to do or not in my nature for I am a sinner it will take the working of the Holy Spirit to get them done.
Application: I need to continue to pray each day morning and night and to study the Word to know what I should be doing. My desire is to do the will of the one who created me so I need to be obedient and to stay on the vine for direction and nourishment to complete the task God has created me for.
Prayer: Dear Lord apart form you I am nothing and can do nothing. Hold me close to you and guide my steps on this journey and show me how to make you proud of me.
