Christ is so important. He is our connection to our Father. He is the giver of life. He is the Creator. The Saviour. The law-giver.
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
These two verses are packed with information and guidance. Christ instructs us to abide in Him. Not only that, but He will abide in us. A vine gives nutrients and life to its branches. Christ gives us instruction and life. If I abide in Him, I will bring forth much fruit.
What is the fruit?
Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God
Christ gives us fruits of righteousness if we abide in Him. This is important because it offers glory and praise to the Father. Amen!
