What’s the secret of growth for a grape? It’s pretty simple: remain connected to the vine.
I’ve never heard the sound of grunts or groans from the grapes in a vineyard. Have you?
In His last moments with His disciples, Jesus made His way across Jerusalem, moving from the Upper Room to the Garden of Gethsemane. Here’s a little piece of what He told them…
John 15:4 Remain in me, as I also 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.
As we focus on intentional abiding in Christ- remaining in Him, thinking of Him, looking to Him- growth will come. Guaranteed.
I hope this painting will serve as a visual reminder to remain in Him. 🙂
