“In its wondrous biology, the grapevine offers a beautiful and perfect analogy to our own life cycle. Every single component of the plant has a specific function that contributes to the overall development of a perfect and complex entity.” Anatomy of a Grapevine
What a beautiful reminder of the Body of Christ. Jesus tells us to remain in Him, apart from Him we can do nothing. In 1 Corinthians 12 Paul reminds us of the unity and diversity of the Body of Christ. The grapevine is complex, as there are many parts and each part is essential to the overall health and quality of the fruit it produces. The FOCUS on bearing fruit is to make disciples. Pure and simple.
What does being a disciple look like in your life? Are you headed in the DIRECTION of abundant living and freedom in Christ? How will you put into practice the call to GO and make disciples? Where do you need a RESET on FOCUS so that the “Kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven” bears fruit in your life?
