Stand Firm

, ,

Jesus says, ‘I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.’ (John 15v5) That last bit is awesome. Apart from God we’re pretty lame. And it’s encouraging to know that when you’re being attacked on every front, God loves you and invites you to walk with him – remain in him.

As Christians we have the Holy Spirit – God in us. He is infinitely more powerful than Satan and his schemes. Also, the fruit of the Spirit is patience. Satan doesn’t have the Spirit so he doesn’t have the fruit so he doesn’t have patience. So when the waves are battering your boat: be patient. Remain in Him. Stand firm. You will bear much fruit.
