Jesus Is The Vine.

“I am the true vine, and My Father is the gardener.” – John 15:1

Since we have been “planted” by Christ, we should bring Him honor, not dishonor. “But I was the One Who planted you, choosing a vine of the purest stock – the very best. How did you grow into this corrupt wild vine?” (Jeremiah 2:21) If we are truly in Him, our thoughts and actions will show that we are His followers. “No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit.” (Luke 6:43) “A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit.” (Matthew 7:18)

The Lord has promised that the righteous minority will receive His blessing for their faithfulness to Him. “The seed will grow well, the vine will yield its fruit, the ground will produce its crops, and the heavens will drop their dew. I will give all these things as an inheritance to the remnant of this people.” (Zechariah 8:12)

Jesus is truly the source of our life as believers, and the only One Who is the true leader of the church. “I always thank my God for you because of His grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in Him you have been enriched in every way — with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge — God thus confirming our testimony about Christ among you.” (1 Corinthians 1:4-6)
