Sunday, May 5, 2024 – Sixth Sunday of Easter

Passage: 1 John 5:1-6, John 15:9-17

God is the vine grower, Jesus is the vine, and we are His branches. Jesus commands us to abide in Him, as He abides in us. We are to abide in Christ's love which takes work. Collecting maple sap is hard, tedious and loving work that produces precious and valuable syrup. Isn't this similar to God working hard, loving and pruning us so we can produce good fruit that will nourish and help others?
