Fruit-bearing Branches 

John 15:5   I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples”

We bear fruit for God’s kingdom by remaining connected to Him, as branches to the Vine!  We grow out of God; we have divine DNA as our branches are made from the same source of God Himself.  He gives us abundant life where He wants us to flourish.  He prunes back the dead parts of our lives for the life-filled parts of us to bear fruit that will last.  He loves to remain connected to us and flow life through us.  Let us be intentional in remaining in Him and bearing His fruit.  Amen!
