Read John 15 today.

This chapter includes Jesus’ words about abiding in Him. Even before I got out of bed this morning, I was thinking of these words. (And the Frankie Vallie song, “Stay” has been stuck in my head.) Nurturing our connection with Christ is important because if it is not maintained, we will whither and die.
What things do you do on a daily basis to to stay close to Christ? Even when you do not feel like it?
John 15:4-8 NLT
Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. [5] “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. [6] Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned. [7] But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! [8] When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father.
