Monday Mission - Are you ready?

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
— 1 Corinthians 10:31

Monday Mission
Open Bible and cup of coffee next to lake.

Now that this is the second week of 2024, I’m still thinking about what this year could look like for me. I heard the question asked in a podcast, “Is your soul ready for 2024?”. That really got me thinking; am I truly bringing God into my life and into all my plans. John 15:4 says, “Remain in me, as I also remain in you.”

One way to do this is to make sure I am aligned with Jesus in everything, including my thoughts and desires. I need to take the time to be quiet and listen to Him.

The verse then goes on to say, “No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.”

This reminds me that I cannot be an effective witness for God without being deeply rooted in Him. In order to bear His good fruit, I need to be grafted, permanently connected, to Him. I can’t bear any fruit unless I am actively spending time with God.

I hope this encourages you as it did me to make spending time with God a priority this year and taking the time to quietly listen to Him.
