WE ALL NEED TO BE CONNECTED TO JESUS – ARE YOU
The Bible teaches us that the Lord is the Vine “True Vine” and you and I are the branches. 1I AM the True Vine, and My Father is the Husbandman. 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. John 15:1, 5. The branch cannot bear fruit in itself except it abide in the Vine. The life is in the Vine. The Father is the Husbandman. He tends it. He gave it to Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ gives it to you and me. You and I are just branches. That is all. You are just a branch; you bear the fruit. You do not produce it; you bear it. Jesus said:
Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the Vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in Me. 7 If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
~John 15:4, 7
We can do nothing without Christ Jesus, but with Him we can do all things. 13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Phil. 4:13. It is by the Grace of God that we are able to go through the situations, conditions and circumstances of life. 9a And He said unto me, My Grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness. 2 Cor. 12:9a. God is not depending upon you, but upon Himself. If God depended upon what you call your faith, He would be in terrible trouble. He is not depending on who you are. He is not depending on what you possess. He is only looking at what He can make of you. What gives us our confidence is the fact that He is not depending on our faith at all.
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.
He is depending on His faith flowing through us, His love flowing through us, His joy flowing through us, His peace flowing through us. 27 So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He Him; male and female created He them. Gen. 1:27. He is depending on His supernatural anointing flowing through your hands and your entire being to accomplish His works. It is His power and faith that does not fail.
And when He had called unto Him His twelve disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The Kingdom of heaven is at hand. 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
~Matthew 10:1, 7-8
