Connected for Holy Living
Jesus once taught that if we stay connected to Him, if we draw our life from Him just as branches draw life from the vine, our lives will bear fruit. And the fruit of a life that is connected to Jesus is “genuine love.” This week, consider your acts of love as seeds of faith you are planting in the life of someone else. You may never see them grow; but you may. This week, cultivate habits that keep you connected to God’s means of grace and make your heart and life more receptive to what God is already doing.
Loving God, by the power of Your Holy Spirit, come and stir the soil of our hearts so that we can be those who grow in love for You and one another. Come and break through the hardened places of our life with the truth of Your Word. Warm us with Your love and light so that new life begins to grow. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
Our Easter worship series, "Start Living," explores the power and promise of Jesus Christ to give us new and everlasting life.
