“Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.” (John 15:4)
Lord, we cannot remain in you unless your Holy Spirit is in us. Thank you for making us yours in the first place.
God, we bring you glory when fruit is produced in our lives. Help us to flower and flourish – not wither and weaken in our faith.
Help us to rest… to abide… to dwell in Christ… having union with him by faith.
Give us a child-like dependence on you.
We’re so easily distracted. May we be fruitful – not for the sake of ‘doing good’ but building our joy in you and magnifying your name.
In Jesus’ name,
