God made us to live a productive life. He told us to “BE FRUITFUL.” Jesus illustrates this principle with a picture of a grape vine. He is the vine and we are the branches. When we ABIDE in Him we will produce much fruit.
If we ABIDE (remain) in Jesus Christ we will live a productive, significant and fruitful life. But what does it mean to ABIDE? Abiding is more about being than doing. Abiding is more about an intimate relationship than a friendly acquaintance. Abiding is more about faithful dedication than causal convenience. To ABIDE means to make Jesus Christ our home, the center of our life.
