“Tell him this is what the Lord Almighty says: Here is the man whose name is the Branch, and he will branch out from his place and build the temple of the Lord.” Zechariah 6:12 (NIV)
Jesus is the Branch and the source to the roots that bring forth the living water for our soul to flourish. No man can plant himself and grow, because all our righteousness is as filthy rags. Only in Christ can we have sustaining life and that is why we must stay connected with Him through prayer, in worship, by testimony, and as we fellowship with other disciples.
Apart from the Lord Jesus Christ we are without hope. We have nothing to offer to others if we are not connected to the Lord as a vine is to the branch because without Him we cannot flourish and in return we will have nothing we can offer others.
Let’s pray today to give praise and to share our belief in Christ with all who ask.
