SPRING FORTH NOW

I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes[a] so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

John 15:1-4 (NIV)


The imagery of a vine is the indistinguishable nature of its branches from the vine itself as well as the branches intentionally intertwined with one another as they were one. The interconnectedness of the vine and branches serves as a symbolic nature of growth and maturity that is deeply rooted in there interconnectedness in which it appears that there nurturing and developing stem from the vine as well as their connectedness to one another to bear fruit. It is the ability to be one with the vine and the branches one with another, this indistinguishable character which is key to bearing fruit; where one is weak or in need or even under attack, they serve to compensate and/or compliment one another so as to be whole together. God challenges you and I, both as individuals as well as a community, to be as the vine and branches, indistinguishable from one other; bearing, supporting, and protecting one another and as a result we are empowered to bear fruit. As one with the vine and with each other we not only seek to be on one accord, caring for one another, and disposed to correction and instruction so that we may mature and expand, individually and collectively. Symbolic to your ability to Soar, advance in your promised abundant life, is your choice to Mobilize Your Forces, your full potential, each gift, within and without, organizing them as indistinguishable from one another, working together for the good. As you abide in God, God abides in you, His Spirit producing branches, forces, gifts and potentiality as well as pruning, correcting, and instructing as necessary; equipping you to handle the vicissitudes of life and overcome. As you operate on one accord with the forces of your life, there is an explosion of your power, the Spirit, consuming you so that you Soar, rise high and be maintained in your height while also increasing rapidly in the fulfillment of God promises for your life. Get deeply rooted and become indistinguishable from the source of life, the Spirit, and be disposed to the necessary correction and instruction, making you and your forces one while diligently pursuing that which God has promised for your life and Soar.
