Lessons in Love: Lesson Twelve


As you start and continue to manifest the fruit, gifts and blessings in your life and in the lives of others. Always keep in remembrance the source of this power.

I hope and pray, Jesus never has to say this to you and I…

Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Rev 2:4

I hope and pray that we always know:

  • We are not GOD.
  • We are not the POWER.
  • We are not the VINE OWNER.
  • We are not the VINE.
  • We are not the FRUIT.
  • We are not the GIFT giver.

WE ARE HIS BRANCH… if we let Him!

Without GOD we can do nothing. But with GOD we can do all things! All we can be is a conduit for His power to flow through us like a branch:

Jesus says: I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. (The answer to how He purgeth branches to produce more fruit is in this next verse.) Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

Abide in me, and I in you.

As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

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.

If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. John 15:1-6

I also see you and I are like an electric cable with a plug one end and a bulb the other. The plug, cable and bulb does not provide the power or the light.

The light is only produced when the socket is plugged in, and turned on to the power source. This power then flows to the bulb to give light. The only thing you need to do is to remain plugged in and switched on to the power source. And to be less resistant and more conductive to The Word of God, for His power to flow through you. To shine His light. That, GOD be glorified.

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority. READ Matt 7:21-29

Enjoy the journey…

Enjoy your journey of walking this life in the Spirit of His love, joy, and peace. And, I sincerely look forward to meeting you one day, or in a thousand years from now in heaven!

P.S. You have been sent this in His love. And, I pray as you have read this you have personally received from God, His heart, His love, His compassion, His desire for you to choose to live the abundant life with Him.

As Jesus prayed for His Disciples, He also prayed just for you: Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word. John 17:20

Brothers and sisters, I encourage you to read aloud John 17 in the KJV. The prayer of Jesus that we be united in Him and Him in us. That we be moved by the compassion of His love he has for us. And, for all others.
