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 15v5
For Christians it should be our goal to really shout God. To shout out all that He’s done and is doing in our lives. As well as just shouting God with our words, we need to make a stand for Him by the lives we live. But the Bible here is saying we won’t live with hearts ablaze for Jesus, we won’t be very effective or bear much fruit if we don’t remain in Jesus. What does this mean? Remain in Jesus?
It means that we need to daily walk close with Him, spending time with Him, reading the Bible, praying, putting on your favourite Christians songs and singing to God. Don’t you know that you become like those who you hang around? But if you spend time with Jesus daily, He daily changes you to be like Him. If we want lives that really shout Jesus, we need to be close to Jesus daily and consistently remain in Him, so that we really bear fruit, because without being connected and close to Jesus, you can’t really make a loud out shout for Him to the world around you.
Cube Challenge: Get half an hour alone with Jesus today. Turn off your tablet, iphone or PC and in the quiet, spend time reading the Bible, praying and worshipping God.
If you do this consistently, the more you will live like Jesus and the more you will shout God to those you do life with!
