Journaling Lent: Day 37, The True Vine

In John 15 Jesus says, "I am the true vine & My Father is the vineyard keeper. Every branch in Me that does not produce fruit He removes...Remain in Me and I in you. Just as a branch is unable to produce fruit by itself unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in Me."

Abide in Him. Such a simple concept. Remain in His love. 

We are to abide in Him and remain in His love. 

If God is love, then we are called to abide in love.

It's hard to hate when we are abiding in love.

It's difficult to kill when we are abiding in love.

It's impossible to live as Christ without abiding in love.

Remain in Him and He will remain in You.
