Davidisms: Remain in Faith

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me” (John 15:4).


Jesus adjures his followers to always abide, rest and remain in him. Using the imagery of a branch and vine to articulate his point. As long as the branch is connected to the vine, life-giving sap runs to it. The branch lives and produces fruit because of the vine (John 15:1-5).


What exactly is Jesus teaching us to do?


Remain in faith. As the vine can only bear fruit when remaining connected to the branch, so it is with Jesus’s followers.


Christians must always be connected to Jesus.


How?


Through our faith in him. Believing his promises - no matter what. Clinging to his truth. Not looking at the size of our circumstances, but instead the size of our God!


What to do when life seems overwhelming? Choose to remain in faith. Connected and surrendered to Jesus.


Each and every day.
