While social media has many drawbacks, one positive aspect is the ability to stay connected with friends and family, even when separated by hundreds or thousands of miles. We are able to share our thoughts, pictures, and video from the present and the past. Being connected with friends and family can help us celebrate our highs and persevere through our lows, but there is an even more important connection!
Jesus reminds us of a greater connection than any we could make on social media. We need to be connected to Him through faith and through God's grace and mercy. When we, the branches, are connected to Jesus Christ, the vine, we can bear fruit. As long as we are connected to God through Jesus Christ, we can have forgiveness and redemption. We can experience His blessings and we can be reassured that He will comfort and guide us through the challenges we face. Throughout our earthly journey, we just need to be sure we stay connected to the Vine!
Stay connected with God through Jesus Christ and be reassured by His blessings and guidance!
Thank You for giving me Your Son to help connect me to You. Help me to stay connected to Jesus Christ so I can bear fruit for You. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
