"Faye's Daily Words Of Encouragement # Today's Word Is: Branch"

Defintion of the word Branch: Any extention from a main part or course, to extend from the main part.

Proverbs chapter 11 - 28 : He that truseth in his riches, shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as branches.

Isaiah chapter 11 - 1 : And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots.

Jeremiah chapter 23 - 5 : Behold, the days come saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous branch,and a king shall reign and prosper, and shall executej udgement and justice in the earth.

Matthews chapter 13 - 32 : Which indeed is the lest of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.

Matthews chapter 21 - 8 : And a very great others cutmultitude spread ttheir garments in the way; others cut down branches from the tree, and strawed them in the way.

John chapter 12 - 13 : Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him; and cried Hosanna,blessed is the king of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.

John 15 -2 : Every branch in me that beareth not fruit, he taketh away; and every branch that beareth fruit , he purge it, that it may bring  forth more fruit.

John chapter 15 -5 : I am the vine, ye are the branches; he that abideth in me, and I in him, the same  bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye are nothing.

John chapter 15 -6 : If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gotten then, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

Today's  daily word of encouragement is Branch, God is the tree of life, Jesus is the vine and the children of God is the branches. When we receive Jesus Christ as our Saviour, get and baptised; we become one with God and we're grafted into the tree of life.  all trees have branches, but  if they become diseased and stop growing; they are cut away from the tree and cast into the fire and burned because they have become unproductive . It work the same way with the children of God; we have to be flourishing branches, sprouting out and making a difference in this world we live in.  If we are unproductive branches, and we don't produce fruit a there no us for us.

Since we're branches grafted into the tree of God, we want to always be flourishing branches that bears good fruit for the kingdom of God, so, we don't be cut down, and cast into the burning fire. Do you have flourishing branches that's bearing good fruit.?

      I constantly ask myself if I'm doing enough in God's service. It's easy to become stagnant in our service due to the fact that there is so much going on around us. This is a good reminder that we should set and keep our priorities straight.
