Christ is the true vine. God the Father is the vinedresser. Every branch that bears fruit he prunes to make it bear even more fruit. Abide in me and I will abide in you. Those that abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing.
Christ is the source of life, the source of eternal life, the source of the spirit. That spirit tells us that we are far more than flesh and blood. It tells us that we are beautifully and wonderfully made. It gnaws within us, telling us to in things of eternity.
The battle within our mind and on the spiritual battlefield is waged every day. We make choices every day. To choose things of earth or eternity and convenience or Christ. It is only when we abide in Christ that the battle is won.
