Good morning.


Here we are at the start of a new week and one thing we know is that as followers of Christ we are to continue in God's purpose for each of us. With this in mind we must be on our gaurd that we do not hive off and try and do it in our own strength.


“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit ..." (John 15:1‭, ‬5)


In these verses Jesus tells us the importance of having on on-going authentic relationship with Him.


As the branches of Christ, our purpose is to bear fruit. We are grafted into the vine (Christ) and are nourished by Holy Spirit in our relationship with Him, daily. Many Christians follow Christ mainly for what He can do for them, while a true disciple is passionate about what He can do through them.


The nourishment we receive through Holy Spirit imparts Christ's life and nature. And so we find our joy and potency by totally depending on Jesus; every day, every hour and every minute.


There is nothing more satisfying than seeing the fruit we bear when we live in the center of God's will, His purpose for us.


"This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples." (John 15:8)


Have a good week.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
