“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. –John 15:5

Our ability to bear fruit–to grow–is directly dependent on our connection with the vine. If we step away from what God has for us, we will immediately begin to wither. As the branches, our source of life, direction, and wisdom comes from remaining in the vine. Just like a plant, all of our nutrients and life comes from our roots; we must be rooted within God daily to be able to understand His will for our lives and to be able to follow Him into it.
