John 15:1-8

One of the greatest miracles that God ever did and still does is to deposit His divine life in mortal beings. This was His desire from the eternities of eternities. It is God who spoke and said, “Let us make man in our image and in our likeness” [Gen 1:26]. God seeks that His life be our life. The Lord Jesus came and displayed this life among us. “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).

In His teaching in John 15, Jesus illustrated this life.
1. The Source of Life – John 15:1
2. The Giver of Life – John 15:5
3. The Recipients of Life – John 15:5
4. The Purpose of Life – John 15:8

God has given us eternal life that we may live to reflect Him on earth. Our heavenly Father is the Gardener and the One who plants and cultivates the vine. The Lord Jesus is the true vine. We are the branches and we are called to bear fruit as we remain in Christ.

Let this life flow in and through you and cause the Father much joy as we bear good fruit and fruit that lasts.

Arise and Shine!
