What does it mean?


Welcome to another Into the Word Wednesday!  I would LOVE it if you linked up with a post about what God is showing you in the Word, or in your life. Please also stop by and see what God has been teaching my beautiful co-hosts this week :

John 15:5 - "I am the vine, you are the branches, he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing."

This is the verse I am memorizing this week. Won't you join me?

I want to give you a challenge if you do. Figure out what it means to abide in Christ. That is such a church-y phrase, but have you ever really pondered the meaning behind it? What does it mean to abide in the One who saved you from your sins? Figure out what that means...and then do it. Spend the week abiding with your Savior. If you do, a week from now, you will be a changed person.

And I can't wait to hear about it!

Would you like to join me in memorizing Scripture? Sign up by sending me an email: talesofbeautyforashes@gmail.com and we can work together toward the goal of memorizing one verse a week. See the tab above for the verses we have memorized so far.

  1. "Apart from me you can do nothing." Boy, that's a tough pill to swallow, especially for a control freak like me. Constantly learning though! Great verse, love!! Why am I not on this memorizing list? Put me on there! Printing this one and taping it to my monitor now. :)

  2. Absolutely needed to hear that. I feel like I am the only one making things happen sometimes. How selfish of me to take all the credit! I need to start the memorizing things and NOW!
