John 15:5

I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do NOTING! –John 15:5

Remaining in Christ means (1) Believing that he is Gods son. (1 John 4:15). (2) Receiving him as savior and Lord (John 1:12). (3) Doing what God says (1 John 3:24). (4) Continuing to believe the gospel (1 John 2:24). (5) Relating in love to the community of believers, Christ’s body ( John 15:12).

Many people try to be good, honest people who do what is right. But Jesus says that the only way to live a truly good life is to stay close to Him, like a branch attached to the vine. Apart from Christ our efforts are unfruitful, and we wont bear the blessings, and special gifts God has in store for us.

God Bless…
