Read: John 15:3-7 Open Heaven 27 March 2020
3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman” John 15:1
When you ask someone to introduce him or herself, you want
the surname, first name and so on. In the above passage, Jesus introduced
Himself as the Vine and His Father is the Husbandman. He went on to say in
verse two that His children are the branches. At other times, Jesus introduced
Himself as the Door, Lamb, Way, Truth, Life, Resurrection, Alpha, Omega and so
on. As s strange as these illustrations may seem, they carry the true picture
of who He is.
He is the Vine and we are His branches; therefore, we are an
extension of Him. If you open up a vine and you open up a branch, you would
find the same thing in both of them; one is only bigger.
That is why Jesus said in John 9:5 that He is the light of
the world and then said in Matthew 5:14 that we the light of the world; this
simply means that we bear the light of Jesus. 1st John 4:17 tells us that as He
is, so are we in this world. In Romans 8:16-17, we are called joint heirs with

This means that we His brothers, thus the same genes that
are in Him are in us also. Ephesians 2:6 says we are seated together in
heavenly places. In Acts 4:13, people saw Peter and John speak and they
recognised Jesus in them. All these scriptures make one thing clear: as long as
you are a child of God, you are to resemble your Father.
But then, how come we have so many ‘Christians’ who don’t
resemble Christ? The answer is in our memory verse for today – they do not
behold His glory. If you immerse yourself in God’s presence every day –
studying your Bible and praying, you will begin to resemble Him as the days go
by. When a man and a woman have been married for a few years, they begin to
look, sound and even think alike. That is because they have been spending time
together for long. Who you spend time with will determine who you become. You
want to truly resemble Jesus? Spend time with Him daily.
