Have you ever wanted to grow in your spiritual walk, but didn’t know where to start? I think a lot of people are in that boat. Well, in John 15 Jesus gives us the key to unlock the spiritual growth code. And it’s far simpler (and deeper) than most imagine! Jesus uses the analogy of a vine and its branches to teach us how to grow. If we abide in Him and He in us, Jesus promises us a fruitful life that will lead to real joy. Abide means to dwell in, to stand in, to stay in a place with intention. This means a personal relationship with Jesus...staying connected with Him not just sometimes, but all the time. Abiding is also fleshed out in community rather than alone, because abiding teaches us to love each other the way Jesus loves us. Finally, abiding in Jesus teaches us to pray big Kingdom prayers...to join Jesus in His mission!
