Week Two: John 15:4-5

A Redeemed Girl is Transformed 

John 15:4-5

"Jesus said, 'Remain in Me & I will remain in you.
No branch can bear fruit by itself, it must remain in the vine.
Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
I am the Vine; you are the branches.
If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit;
apart from Me you can do nothing.' "

Last week's verse was about God giving us a new heart + a new spirit. He just gives it us for free!
So what do we do next? This is a great follow up verse to the first one {I guess that's why they at Redeemed Girl, picked it}. The next step is to remain + abide in Him. How do we do that? What does that mean?

It means we spend time getting to know Him by reading Scripture + praying. I admit, I don't set time aside for Him daily. I need to, oh how desperately I need to! So you're not alone if you don't. However, I do notice a huge difference in my life + attitude when I do spend time with Him on a regular basis.

I encourage you to spend more time with Him this week than you normally do. Whether its more days of the week or longer periods of time, just increase your time with Him. You'll be amazed at how you will begin to change + see Him more at work in your life.

Don't forget, 
Choose Joy!
