Have you ever felt distant from God? Most of us have at one time or another. As God’s children, He has provided a way for us to stay close to Him all the time.
The analogy of the vine is one of the most illustrative pictures of our relationship with Jesus Christ and our Father. Jesus’ words, enable us to better understand the intricate bond we have with God.
The branches draw their life from the vine. The outgrowth’s constant dependence upon the vine is vital. The branches bear fruit only by being completely connected to the vine and allowing the life juices flow through them. This is a picture of God’s people finding fulfillment in life by staying dependent upon God our Heavenly Father.
As we reflect upon this analogy, we will better understand why God cares for us the way He does. For example, our Christian lives might be dry because we have drifted away from close fellowship with Him. Many of our life problems can be resolved by purposely focusing on our dependence upon Jesus Christ the vine and enjoying His presence. This will be elaborated on below.
A strategic basic discipleship series designed to help Christians grow not only in their relationship with God but also with other people. Each section uses a familiar relationship to bring out basic but very practical Biblical teaching.
We highly recommend getting the BFF Discipleship #1 Digital Library which not only includes the Relationship Discipleship book, but slides, summaries, user guide, teacher's reference, etc. This D#1 Library also contains all our other Christian training resources for new believers.
