I am taking extra time to pray through the devotional “THE STORY OF EASTER” on the Internet via “YOUVERSION.COM” Today’s reading has us focusing on John 15. This has to be one of my favorite passages! As you recall, it reminds us that Jesus is the vine – we are the branches. Whoever stays connected to Jesus will bear fruit. The accompanying devotional thoughts are as follows:
“In the picture of the vineyard, we must make sure we know who we are. We are the branches. Our only one job is holding on to Jesus, the vine. By doing so we will fulfill our solitary purpose: bearing fruit. Literally all of the other work that takes place in the vineyard will be done by the gardener. That's God. Not me. Not you. Our job is to allow Him to work through us by staying connected to the vine. Meditate today on who you are and what you are called to do. Clinging. Remaining. Connecting. Holding on. Abiding. That's all, nothing else.”
Praying this day that nothing will distract either one of us from our main job- staying connected to Jesus.
