We are the branch and Jesus is the Vine!
I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away, and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
Thank You for today. Thank You for this beautiful story of our growth and journey with You. We are the branches and we invite Your pruning. Grow us and shape us to be the people You want us to be. Please do not allow growth to get out of control in areas of our lives that are not pleasing to You. We do not want outward growth with no fruit. It is our strong desire to bear fruit, more fruit and much fruit!!
Help us to always keep an open mind and an open heart so that we can receive the pruning without getting defensive. Show us signs of that fruit every day in our lives. And thank You for already showing us those signs. It is in Jesus name we pray.
