Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 262

  1. “I am the Vine, you are the branches” (John 15:5).

There is no confusion in our relationship to Christ. He is the Vine–the Source of our life. He is the Means by which we will bear fruit. He is the Provider, the Sustainer–what keeps the branch alive and functioning. As a branch, my focus must be two-fold. I must maintain and strengthen my connection to the Vine–no blockages, nothing to hinder the flow of that life. Second, I must let that life flow through me. Only as Christ flows into and through my life will I be able to bear the kind of fruit that He desires. Only then can I be a productive branch. Any other path to “fruitfulness” will fail to produce that which endures.
