I Choose You....Will You Choose Me?

Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. John 15:4 NLT


Jesus' Promise: Remain in me and I will remain in you.


How do we remain in Jesus?


1. Daily prayer

  • Simply talk to God. "Hi God, I am happy about...." "Hi God, thank you for shelter..." How do you talk to a friend? Jesus (the visible image of God) is the best friend we could ever have

2. Reading the Bible

  • Choose a version that you understand (KJV, NKJV, NLT, NIV, ESV, AMP). Keep it simple.

  • 1 word vs. 1000 words. Quality vs Quantity. You could read 10 chapters each day and not understand a word. What is the point of reading it if you don't understand it?

  • The Bible is God's love letter to you. Take your time. What is God trying to say to you right now?

3. Obeying the Bible

  • This is the tricky part. Not only do you have to read the Bible and understand it, but you also have to apply it.

  • This journey with God is a process. Let God lead you one step at a time.

  • You will never be perfect. That is why Jesus had to die for us on the cross. He knew we couldn't save ourselves.

  • Jesus loves you right now just as you are. He knows all about your sins (ALL of them). Guess what? He still loves you. You are His child.

4. Fellowship

  • Two are better than one.

  • Pray to God to send you the right people.

  • While you are waiting, remember you are not alone. Jesus is with you.

  • Ideas to meet new people: Church, Bible study groups, Meetup, Book clubs (before joining an organization/event, pray to God for guidance. Not everything is for you)


Daily Affirmation: I am chosen by God. I choose God. Progress not perfection.
