Jesus said, “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you, unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me, and I in him, he bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing” (John 15:4-5). Fruit characterizes the life of the Christian steward. It is interesting to note that, in this passage above, Jesus did not say, “You should bear fruit.” He stated that when we abide in Him, it follows naturally that we will bear fruit.
God has plans for our lives and wants to use us. When we abide in Christ, we will be fruitful. We will discover and follow His plan, and we will use the gifts He has given us to serve the people of the world. The Time is NOW to use those God-given gifts in the LWML!
