It reminded me of God being the Vine, and me the branch. His beauty continues to grow and spread throughout my life, making me look more and more like Him! I begin to grow fruit that looks like Him. He tangles Himself up in me and we become unified.
I read this verse in Matthew 7:16-20 yesterday with my group:
"You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes not figs from thistles, are they? So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad trees bear bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits."
When someone looks at me, I want them to see The Vine that has tangled Himself within me, living sharp, and holy! The fruit produced will be evidence of His Presence, abundant and full.
Jesus, Say That Again, You are The Vine within me, and it is good!
