Rebuilding My Devotional Life in Christ Jesus
I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
(John 15:5 KJV)
Jesus in his earthly ministry had total dependence on God the Father. According to John 5:19, Jesus could do nothing without the Father. He knew his time on earth was coming to an end and it was important for him to prepare his disciples on what was to come. He needed them to first understand that he would be their source; he was their helper and without him they will not be able to “bear fruit” or in other words, fulfill the will of the Father. Therefore, it is very important that we seek Jesus through the reading of scripture and prayer so that we will “bear fruit”.
Father may we learn to depend on you always so that we will bear fruit. In Jesus’ name
