For every thing to ruction it needs to be connected to a certain source of power. For everything to achieve its purpose there has to be a constant connection to the source of power. By constant I mean always connected not connect and disconnect at certain times. For example a TV , Fridge or Stove to work they have to be connected to the electricity supply always . You can not plug in a TV now and disconnect it and expect to watch it. For a fridge to stay cold and keep the food fresh it has to be constantly connected to the power supply, the very moment it disconnects some things will go off and some may not be as fresh as you had wanted them to.
John 15:1-6 I am the true vine , and my Father the husbands man. 2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit , he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. 4 Abide in me, and I in you . As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
The above verses Jesus tells us what exactly we need to do for us to be fruitful. We need to stay connected to him and Him to us for without him we are nothing. Just as useless as a TV without electricity or a car without petrol a Christian without Christ is useless and may never achieve the purpose that God placed him on earth for.
Most Christians have an on and off kind of relationship with God. A toxic relationship in which we only run to God in our times of need but when its all well in life we forget. Jesus says you cannot bear fruit on your own you have to be connected to him and him to you and that is the only way you can bear much fruit. Its a two way relationship it needs you to connect and him to be connected.
Jesus is the power source of our lives, we need to be constantly connected to him for us to survive. This connection has to be constant. For a car and take you to your intended destination the engine has to be constantly supplied with fuel. So for us to reach our destination which is the new Jerusalem in heaven we need to be constantly connected our source the true vine which is Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen.
