‘I Love You’. Such a powerful phrase, many expectations, dreams and potential in one phrase. Depending on the speaker of thes words, the validity and connotation can vary. One thing’s for sure, when God tells us, “I Love You” we can be sure it’s the real deal. As such, we have to ensure that when we face ourselves and say those famed three words, we too are the real deal.
In God we find the vine to our branch, how to we use the love, consitency and faith of the vine to nurture and strengthen our branch with self-love? This week, Minister Shawn Lawrimore challenges us to build our relationship with God with self-love as a foundation. This week’s message is supplemented in the devotional “Jesus is The Vine”. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
The vine and the branches form an inseparable unit. We cannot see where the vine ends and the branch begins. The branch is continually being fed by the vine. If the branch is cut from the vine, it will wither and die.
You must remain in Jesus like the branch in the vine. This implies that you will be willing to work on your relationship with Him, that you will grow and become stronger every day, so that you will be able to bear much fruit. It also means that you will get to know him better, and love Him even more. Read More.
