John 15:5, NKJV “I am the vine, and you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit, for, without Me, you can do nothing.”
Jesus invites us to abide, and abiding multiplies much fruit. When you fulfill your purpose in life, which is to bring honor and glory to God, you also enjoy life like never before by bearing much fruit.
How to abide in Jesus’ love:
#1 Connection with Jesus. When we abide in Jesus, we have a life-giving connection to Him. If there is no connection, there is no life, fruit, or joy.
#2 Dependence on Jesus. The branch is dependent on the vine. Without the vine, the branch is useless, lifeless, and powerless.
#3 Continuance with Jesus. To abide is to continue, stay, and remain.
Today’s Challenge: Abiding leads to multiplying. How do you abide? If abiding involves ongoing daily dependence on Jesus, what does that look like in your life?
