Abide in Him.......

In today’s Gospel, Jesus encourages us to abide in Him.  What does it mean to abide in Him?  Our thoughts, words and actions need to be aligned to what is true, good and pleasing to God.  
 Just as branches cannot bear fruit apart from the vine, there can be no fruit in our lives without Him. If we distance ourselves from Jesus, we cannot be good, faithful, generous or patient.  Without Him we cannot know the joy and peace that only Christ can bring.  Bearing good fruit oftentimes requires pruning. The Lord promises, however, that we will bear much fruit if we abide in him and allow him to purify us. 

Do you trust the Lord's guidance and wisdom in your life?  Whatever difficult situation you may be facing in, if you abide in Him, believe that the ultimate vinedresser will help you bear healthy fruit.
