Amen Corner: Sunday Stewardship Inspiration

Bear Much Fruit

This is your calling and mine. The 15th chapter of John’s Gospel provides the essential plan of Jesus. “Without me, you can do nothing. Remain in me as I remain in you. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit. By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.” How much fruit does Jesus want to bear through you? Much. How? By remaining in Him and He in you. Praying with the daily Mass Scriptures is one very good way. Is it optional? Not for a Christian disciple – “without me, you can do nothing.” Those who do not remain in me will “wither” and be as useless as a dead branch. In Christ. Bear much fruit.

You were born for this.
