Jesus is the Vine, Remain in Christ the true vine and do not be dismayed.
The Assistant Parish Priest of the Catholic Church of the Ascension, Asaba, Delta State, Rev Fr. Victor Ijeh, has encouraged Christians to trust in the Lord with all of their heart.
Fr. Ijeh admonished Christians on the importance to remain in Jesus Christ, who is the true vine and that cut off from Him, we can do nothing which simply means that, we must at all times ensure that our relationship with Jesus is that of total independence. Because He is the source of life and grace.
The priest enjoined the people of God not to separate from Christ but must continually abide in Him to enable us bear fruit that will give glory to God and help promote the work of salvation here on earth with the the fruits.
He said ” if we cut off from Christ, we run into crisis but if we remain in Him, we will run into increase.” Stressing the book of psalms 118:8 which states that, it is better to take refuge in the Lord than man. Also , the book of proverbs 3:5 reveals that it is better to trust in the Lord with all of our heart.
Speaking to his parishioners, he said if we must remain in Christ, we must do His will, and obey his commandments. He further charged them to trust and obey Christ for there is no other way to be happy.
