“Abide in Me, & I in you.” – John 15:4

 

vine-and-branches

In the famous beautiful 15th Chapter of John, Jesus says, “I am the Vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in Me, & I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit, for without Me ye can do nothing! If a man abide not in Me, he is cast forth as a branch, & withered; & men gather them, & cast them into the fire, & they are burned!” (John 15:5,6) If ever you, as a branch, don’t abide in the Vine, don’t abide in Christ, don’t abide in His Love, His Word, His Service, then you will become unfruitful & withered, & you will be cast forth as a branch! – Not lost, not unsaved, but cast aside as being no longer useful.

8-20 copyWithout the flow of God’s Spirit there is no life. You must be firmly implanted in the Vine where you’re receiving the spiritual sap & life & nourishment that you need direct from the Lord Himself. – And a lot of how you grow is up to you, by how much nourishment you receive! So don’t cut yourself off from the Vine!

He said, “Without Me ye can do nothing.” But if you are dwelling in the Vine, as one of the branches, then you can produce beautiful leaves & beautiful fruit so that He may be glorified and have much fruit!

About Simple Truth

We are sorry to have to suggest that we have a whole generation these days that has been, in a sense, spiritually castrated from birth. If you feel you are in a wilderness and that something is seriously missing from your life, then this could be the place for you. Our hope here is to offer some simple explanations as well as some simple realities, addressing the spiritual need in all.
