Jn 15:4 ESV “Abide in me and I in you.”
The Lord has drawn me to this text and specifically this phrase, “Abide in me and I in you”. It has indeed captured my attention as I was caught up in the simplicity of this powerful but all too often overlooked truth. We must remain, stay, abide, and continue, in the Lord Jesus Christ even as He will remain, stay, abide and continue in us.
The Lord Jesus Christ is here declared to be The Vine. He, Himself, is the source of our lives and eternal fruitfulness. As a branch of He who is the vine, we must remain attached, connected and in a position of receiving that which is only available in and through Him, of His life, Spirit, Anointing and that His fruitfulness of nature, character and being may manifest in and through us.
