The Trellis and the Vine

The Ministry Mind-Shift That Changes Everything”

At the site, Steven Sawyer, Devotionals Blogger, I was reminded of this interesting read that I’ve been working my way through for a couple of months now. (It’s too long a story at this moment to explain why I haven’t gotten through it in that time)

In this book, and Steven’s post, Santa Claus and Satan, the reader is confronted with the most exciting news available to all believers in Jesus Christ. A successful and profitable Christian life is not only possible… it is ensured!

How? By simply responding to the words of Jesus to His disciples in the fifteenth chapter of John’s account of the gospel. There Jesus said, “Abide in Me!” He shared with them… and with us, “Make your home in Me.” And for those who refuse? They are left with no hope.

  1. The point I like most here is that the same sap which flows through the Vine (Christ) also flows through the branches (us) and because of this we are enabled to “abide in Him”

    This puts me in mind of the scripture, “I am the vine; you are the fruit.” The fruit results from choosing the right home!

      Thank you, Granbee. That may be the most amazing comment I’ve ever received… “The fruit results from choosing the right home!” God bless you good friend!
