Moses said to Joshua, ‘Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff (rod) of God in my hands.’
- Wherever we go and whatever we do, we must make sure that the Lord is with us. - We must not do things in our own strength or in our own wisdom. - The ‘rod of God’ was a symbol that the Lord was with them. - Now, as you face the day, take hold of His hand, and He will give you the victory.
Prayer: Lord, thank You that You are with me. Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, because You are close beside me. Your rod and Your staff protect and comfort me. Amen.

Connected To The Vine
September 16, 2019
CONNECTED TO THE VINE But how is this possible? How can we be fruitful Christians? It starts with a vital, living connection to the vine. Jesus tells us that He is the vine and we need to be connected to Him. This is the only way in which we can produce fruit.
John 15:4 Take care to live in me, and let me live in you. For a branch can’t produce fruit when severed from the vine. Nor can you be fruitful apart from me.
Apart from God we cannot be fruitful. We need that vital flow from God to us to make us fruitful.
BEING FRUITFUL AS WE CARE FOR OTHERS
Here is another way in which we can be fruitful. It is as we love and show kindness to others that our lives can become fruitful.
Titus 3:14 For our people must learn to help all who need their assistance, that their lives will be fruitful.
A vine produces fruit, but the fruit is not for itself, it is for others. The purpose of our fruitfulness is to be a blessing to others. God wants us to fruitful in this way.
