Feeling insignificant, and not understanding our value and purpose as children of the Almighty God has become an epidemic in the Body of Christ… and in my own life. So, I have set out to search God’s Word and find out my significance. Last lesson we discussed Salt and Life. Now, we will talk about branches…
You are Significant:
You are Branches on the True Vine
I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you. Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.
“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned. But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father. – John 15:1-8 (nlt)
How do branches tell us our significance?
The Creator of the Universe has adopted us and made us a part of His family tree.
We were created to bear fruit for the glory of God and His Kingdom.
Through Christ, we can do all things, overcome all things, and endure all things.
When we remain with Him and follow Him, we are attached to the power of the Vine–Jesus Christ!
Isn’t that AWESOME!? Whoop! I mean this just makes me so happy! I am a branch and Jesus is the Vine that holds me, loves me, and helps me to become beautiful fruit that brings glory to my Daddy in Heaven!
YOU are a branch!
WE are all His branches.
Without branches a tree cannot bear fruit! We are very important and significant to the Kingdom of God, and sharing His amazing love with this dark and lost world!
Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches.
He is the Vine and We are the Branches!
Pin it for later!
