Effort isn’t the only measurement for success…we must be attached to the source so our efforts count for eternity!
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
John 15:5 - I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit.
Read - John 15
Jesus’ parables still speak to us today. We have all tried hard and ended empty-handed. Why? Could it be that our efforts lacked the resources that God so graciously supplied therefore they fell short or bore no fruit? Let’s make sure that beyond any other matter, we are connected to God’s great source of life - a relationship with Christ.
Lord, I will submit to Your way by connecting myself to Your great vine.

Where does our power come from? The Holy Spirit of God empowers us and Morph’s us to serve Him mightily with our lives. This only happens if we have been connected to God through a repentant and faithful relationship with Jesus Christ. Then we can bear fruit!
