This Summer we had several severe thunderstorms come through causing large tree limbs to come down in our yard. Chainsaw in hand, my husband and I made short work of cutting up the fallen boughs. But it was amazing to me to see just how quickly the leaves had already wilted on the branches. When Jesus said, “Remain in Me.” He’s speaking about the mutual union between Himself and all Believers. And when we abide in this relationship through obedience and dependence on Jesus…we grow and flourish. For as we remain in Him, we will bear the fruit of God’s evidence in our life…a life full of joy, peace, and encouragement.
