Some time ago I noticed a vine growing in my flower bed and didn’t know if it was a weed or if it was a vine I had planted. I had to make a decision. Uproot it or let it grow? Many today seek spiritual teachings, but find themselves like me. Is what they’re reading or hearing true? Or, is what they’re hearing simply man’s thoughts? Jesus doesn’t want us to make a wrong decision. He tells us in John 15:1, “I am the true vine.” Do you know someone who is allowing vines of secular humanism to grow in their heart rather than growing Jesus’s words and teachings in their heart? If so, what can you do? Bear Christ, the TRUE VINE and His fruit in your life so they can taste and recognize the real thing.
Lord Jesus, we praise You, the TRUE VINE. Uproot anything in our lives that chokes out the fruit of Your presence.
