Thank You Lord for branching out and reaching us – even making us part of Christ as the vine tree! Lord, we cannot do anything without You! We don’t even want to try to do something without being one with You! Keep us abiding in You, enjoying the rich supply from the vine! Lord, as the branches, we need You! You are our life supply and our unique source! All we have, all we are, and all we can do comes from You, Lord!
Even our bearing of the fruit, Lord, depends on our abiding in You: keep us abiding! Thank You we are one spirit with You: keep us in this organic union! Lord, our spirit! We just want to keep turning to You and allowing You as the rich supply to fill us and saturate us! As we are one with You, Lord, may Your life in us bear fruit – both in Your increase in us and in people being drawn to You! Lord, we can’t bear fruit apart from You – save us even from trying this! Lord, in this abiding, bear much fruit in us!
Thank You Lord that all we need to do is to abide! As we abide in You, You abide in us! Lord, keep us abiding in You!
