Pictures With A Message


 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. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples." John 15 : 5 - 8

The cartoon is a reminder to us of these sobering words of Jesus, some branches of the vine are bearing fruit and are happy in the "Vine" while some are gradually falling off - here are just some of the reasons - unbelief, the cares of this world, apathy, but hatred is represented as one of them trying to saw other branches off the vine...
Some who make a profession of being christian return to the way they lived before, While some go to church but the words of Jesus have little or no effect upon their lives, - but the genuine christianity that Jesus talked about, is about changed lives and remaining in Him, if His words remain in us we shall surely bear much fruit.
But if we feel we are not bearing fruit as we should - don't be discouraged there is a promise ...if the words of Jesus still remain in us - Jesus said .."ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you, This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples."

As christians we all need to ask this question from time to time - am I bearing fruit in my life for my Father's glory? and then pray accordingly.
