John 15:4

“Remain in me, as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me.”

Jesus says that God is the vine grower, he is the vine, and we are the branches.

How can we make sure that our lives will “bear fruit”?

Jesus says by remaining in him.

How do we do this?

By getting to know him through reading his words in the gospels and meditating on them;

By following his example of letting go of our ego’s desires and serving those in need;

By being his hands and his feet…allowing Jesus to live through us.

In the prayer known as the “Our Father”…Jesus instructed us to pray these words to God: “Your will be done” (which of course means…not my will be done!).

By consciously being connected to Jesus as a branch is to the vine…we are promised life to the full.

We will find our true selves.

“I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)
