Want to read the Bible with me today? http://www.timhowey.com/2016/01/my-bible-reading-2016.html
First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read John 15.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
- Historical — Jesus teaches that He is the “true vine” and His followers are “the branches” which are connected to and hanging onto Him; He also teaches that much of the world will hate and persecute His followers because they hated and persecuted Jesus.
-Doctrinal — Jesus is as much our source of support and life and fruitfulness as a branch needs a tree.
- Inspirational — God, may I never shy away from the “pruning shears” you bring to my life (see verses 2-3), knowing that, however painful, You are pruning me to make me more fruitful.
