God had put in my heart for a lot time a desire for there to be fruit in my life. But try as I might there wasn’t much. At times I felt so useless. I would always waste hours of my days to nothing, and try as I might I couldn’t overcome my weaknesses. I hadn’t been depending on God for his strength.
That’s when I took a closer look a John 15:5~ I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
God started showing me that on my own I was useless, and there wasn’t a purpose to my life, but when I choose to lean on Christ and abide in Him then He is able to work through me so that there is much fruit.
But what exactly is abiding in Christ. It means using your time to read God’s word and pray, instead of spending time with the foolish petty things of the world. There should be a desire in each of our hearts as Christians to spend time with God , and when we do God truly starts working through us to fufill His purpose for us in our lives. Each one of us have been commissioned to share the gospel, but in our own strength we can do nothing. But in Christ’s strength we can do everything He has called us to.
Philipians 4:13~ I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
