A daily encouragement to read the Bible with others from Christ Community Church, Conway.
Bible Reading Day 157
Day 157: June 6 (John 15)
Today, the YouVersion plan calls for John 16:1-18, and then returns to John 15 tomorrow. To avoid confusion I am going to comment on John 15 today and John 16 tomorrow! The link below is to the John 15 reading.
The Vine and the Branches
Jesus is the vine, we are the branches. He provides the life, we bear the fruit. Every vine needs a farmer or vinedresser. The Father fulfills this role in our lives. The only way we can be fruitful is with the life of Jesus flowing through us.
Godless hate for godly people.
Just as religion hated Jesus, and the powerful were threatened by His radical obedience to the Father, so we will find ourselves treated in similar ways. Since we are servants of our master, Jesus, this should be no surprise to us. The servants get treated the same way as the Master! But Jesus reminds us there is a friend coming, the Holy Spirit, who will confirm everything we know from Him.
That is good news! Invite Him to refresh your knowledge of Jesus today.
