August 31 BIBLE MEDITATION: ?These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.? John 15:11
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: Do you depend upon Jesus Christ? I mean totally depend upon Him? Here?s the way you can tell ? are you resting in Him today? You see, when you are totally committed to Jesus Christ, you rest in Him. You realize that your every need is necessary for Him to supply. Have you ever looked at a branch? It has no other source of life than the vine. If you asked that branch, ?What?s your secret for your healthy leaves and fruit?? then he would say, ?My secret is that I?m resting in the vine.? ?But, what about your needsí? you ask. ?I know I have needs, but that?s not my responsibility. My response is to rest in the vine?s ability to provide. I don?t produce the fruit. I just bear it.? Are you resting in the Lord today?
ACTION POINT: Take a walk outside over the next couple of days if you can and take a close look at the trees, shrubs, and vines. Meditate on what it means to abide in Christ ?that your joy might be full.?
