“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. John 15:5
The Lord Jesus Christ is our very source of life now and for all of Eternity. Without Him we are powerless. Unless your eyes and heart are set upon and Abiding in Him you can do nothing! When the Lord Jesus Christ appeared to me many years ago He said something that I have lived with every day and have never forgotten. The Lord Jesus Christ said you have to create an environment for Me to be in if you want to Abide in My Presence. James 3:16 For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.
2 Cor 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
If our hearts and minds are on this world and our troubles then we will receive the fruits of this world and troubles. If your heart is on the Lord Jesus Christ then you’ll receive the Fruits and the very Life of Jesus Christ flowing through you. If your eyes and heart are on the things of this world than the things of this world will fill you with all of its sorrows
John 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
When you live and Abide in the Lord Jesus Christ then you are in total Agreement with Him and His Living Eternal Word. Unless you Abide in Him you cannot be in Agreement with Him.
John 15:7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
Matthew 18:19-20 “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. :20 “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
If you look all through the Bible and the last few centuries the greatest pioneers of our faith always Abided in and had their eyes and heart on the Lord Jesus Christ continuously.
You are what you eat. Lord Jesus Christ said man does not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. If you’re feeding and abiding on the things of this world then the fruit of this world will show through you. When you Abide in the Lord Jesus Christ and His Words then all the world will see a River of Life flowing through you.
Mark 12:30 ‘And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.
Col 3:1–2 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
