Christian Devotion about remaining in Christ
"...Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and
I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit
of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to)
the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide
in Me. I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever
lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit.
However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with
Me] you can do nothing..." - John 15:4-5 (AMPC)
Apart from Christ we can do nothing! This means that we
cannot be productive in bearing fruit by being apart
from Christ. Just like a branch that has been cut off
from the vine cannot bear fruit–neither can we. Just
like the branch, we would wither and die. As we know
the branch gets its nourishment from the tree or vine.
We have been grafted into the vine by our faith in Jesus.
It is vital to remain grafted into the vine and receive
the nourishment from the vine, to grow and produce the
fruit we were designed to produce.
It is God's desire for us to produce much (abundant)
fruit. And we can if we abide in Christ.
We need to stay grafted into the vine
To produce the fruit for which we were designed.
