“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.” John 15:5
NOTHING. I love how Jesus is so clear and unwavering in this verse. He is the Vine and we are merely branches, that will be cut off if we are unfruitful. It’s so tempting to want to depend on ourselves to change, improve and make a difference in our lives.
However, Christ distinctly says in this verse that we can do NOTHING if we don’t abide in Him only. I believe that this is the theme verse for Kingsview’s Worship Ministry in 2013.
Every year, we discuss how we can be more effective in our Sunday morning services. We say things such as more creative elements, more special guests, more new songs, more old songs and much more!
Even though these are honourable things to do, we have to remember that it will not be by our strength alone that will grow our ministry!
2013 will be the season for the Worship Ministry to seek out what bearing fruit will look like at Kingsview Church and what it means for us to abide in Him. Let’s all pray together as we pursue the True Vine like never before!
I’m excited for what God will do!
