WE MUST HAVE SALVATION
John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
Sometimes we get the idea that there are some things that we just must have. If we take time to think about it we would realize that many of the things we consider so necessary are things that people have been getting along quiet nicely without for thousands of years.
If we are going to live a fruitful Christian life there are some things that are absolutely essential. I will be discussing some of these in the next few devotionals. Speaking of fruitful if we are going to bear fruit we must realize that we are only the branches.
Jesus is the vine. We must be connected to Him and allow His strength and His life to fill us or we will never be able to be fruitful. When a branch is separated from the vine, not only will it stop bearing fruit, it will wither and die.
Make sure you are alive and vibrant and filled with Jesus by staying connected to Him through study, prayer, service and fellowship with other believers.
