DO IT FOR THE TRUE VINE!

“Do it for the Vine!”  
Ok, not for the “app” but for the TRUE VINE as mentioned in John 15:1-5. In his sermon (‘The Truth About Believers’) Pastor Charles Stanley said, When I became a believer, someone patted me on the shoulder and said, “Do the best you can,” which is neither biblical nor helpful advice. A while later, I was discipled by some faithful saints, who taught me the truth about believers.” He further stated, “A believer’s mission is to show Christ to the world. Our vine is to bear the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Gal. 5:22-23). When our character and conduct reflect these aspects of Jesus’ nature, we help others to see the beauty of a relationship with the Lord. The truth about believers is that we don’t have to “do the best we can.” God works through His children to accomplish His purposes.” I personally find comfort in knowing the good in me derives from the power of the TRUE VINE that intravenously flows through me.
