Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ Matthew 22:37 (NKJV)
Every good thing is from God, and God is eternal. We are all called to action as believers. Let your actions start with God, and they will be of God and they will be good and blessed, bearing much fruit.
Our natural, human tendency is to be more selfish by living for ourselves and to seeking our own happiness. A great way to overcome that tendency is to start each day by offering ourselves to God, by choosing to do His will over our own. That connection to Him helps us to do this.
We are to live our lives as a branch, connected to God on the one end and bearing His fruit on the other end. Stay connected to God so you don’t wither and die. Be a vessel of God in which He flows continually through you. Think of it as flow in and flow out. 100% receiving from God, and 100% producing for God.
“Our relationship with God flows out of our love for God.” - Christine Caine
