I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.
Abide in the Greek mean to remain or to stay. To abide in Christ is to depend on him as the branches depend on the vine. Sometimes we lose sight of depending on Christ because of the distraction in our lives. We tend to focus on our career, kids, marriage, bills, and other things more than Christ Jesus. Theses things are good and necessary but let’s involve Jesus more in our lives. Let’s seek after his wisdom and guidance so that we can bear much fruit and prove to be his disciples. (V8)
