Grow on the Vine

I was just reading through the book “Grace, God’s Unmerited Favor” and
there was a verse which really shot out at me.
John 15:16
– “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you,
that he should go and bring forth fruit”

God has chosen us for the express purpose to bring forth fruit. It
seems that memorizing the Word of God, studying the Bible, encouraging
the brethren and other works are for the purpose of bringing forth
much fruit.

I really thank the Lord for showing me this verse and working in my
heart, my desire is to serve Christ and be used all I can be for Him.
It thrills my heart when I feel God is telling me areas to focus on or
explains why I should be doing what I’m doing.

If somebody out there is actually reading this blog please make sure
you are on the True Vine, the proof will be in the fruit. If you know
you’ve been saved let this be an encouragement to grow and bear much

Nothing in this world thrills me as much as having God’s Word speak to
me (though its got some tough things to say to me) I can’t imagine a
life without Christ, it would be so purposeless. I thank God my savior
for saving my wretched soul even when he already knew how many times I
would disappoint him. All I can say is PRAISE THE LORD IVE BEEN SAVED
