Abide In Christ Jesus

As believers in Christ, we should never be satisfied to think we have reached some self-proclaimed pinnacle of spiritual success, rather continue to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2Peter3:18). Jesus reminds us in John15:16 that He chose us to “go and bear fruit.” The result of healthy growth is continuing to bear spiritual fruit throughout our lives. Our Lord promises: “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit”
In a steady and faithful progression to become more and more like the One we love and serve, we can be confident that He who began “a good work” in us will continue it until it is finally finished on the day when He returns (Phil1:6).
God’s unseen work in our hearts produces fruit in our lives.
