I Am the Vine

John 15:1. I Am the true vine and my Father is the gardener.

The gardener plants, nourishes and cares for the vine. Jesus says He is the vine and His Father is the gardener Who planted Him, nourishes Him and cares for Him. In John 15:5 Jesus says, “I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in me-and I in him-bears much fruit, because apart from me you can accomplish nothing.” Just as Jesus is cared for and nourished by the Father, we are also nourished and cared for, but only if we stay attached to the vine, Jesus. To stay attached we must abide in Him. To abide means to live with and in. We must be aware of Jesus within us and us within Him throughout each and every day. Psalms is full of words of meditating on Him throughout the day and night. Our question is how often are we aware of His very real presence with us and our very real presence with Him?
