John 15:1-8

Our focus should be connection over production, abiding over achieving.

Hindrances to connection:

  • We find production gets rewarded.
  • We think production is what leads to connection with God.
  • Cultural expectations of productivity drive us toward misaligned priorities.
  • The pull of production over connection often feels like “being responsible.”
    Luke 10:40-42
  • Connection always feels like it can wait, but production feels like it needs to happen right now.

Branches have absolute dependence on the Vine.

If you show absolute dependence on the vine, you will have deeper connection, close communion and bear much fruit.
