“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. John 15:1
There is true and false vine tree, but by their fruit, you shall know them. The system of sustenance of every believer is likened to the tree which is planted in God’s vineyard. Jesus became the tree of life, and we are not just a strand in the garden, but rather, in the tree where Jesus has taken root, there we are also positioned, right there with him.
What nourished Him nourishes us, what upholds Him, upholds us. Every believer has a space in God, and no man dares take your place. When we came into Christ, we were grafted into the tree like a vast olive and become a perfect fit in His body. And then, God began to water us and nourishes us so that we bear fruit.
“Now, if some branches have been broken off, and you, a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others to share in the nourishment of the olive root.” Romans 11:17
The nourishment we receive in Christ help us to bear fruit, for we show that the vine is a true vine, we testify that the vine is blessed beyond curse. As we bear fruit, we display to other plantings that there is so much capacity in this vine that fruits aren’t a strange thing but rather a manifest of who we are now in Christ. As we bear the fruit, He takes worries and cuts away from us the impediments that limit fruitfulness.
Jesus makes us more fruitful with all He does for us, and hence, we manifest. You and I, dearly beloved are the planting of the Lord, to bring forth fruit that makes the earth rejoice and believe that of a truth, our God is a good God. 1 Corinthians 3:9 says “For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building.”
1. Lord, I worship You for the grace given to attach with your vine
2. Father, thank you for bringing me in. I bear much more fruit today than yesterday.
3. I pray that you take me out of my rut (name it- Spiritually business, ministry, family, and marriage) and nourish me with the strength to become more productive in Jesus’ Name.
