This is what the Lord says: "cursed is the one who trust in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the Lord. He will be like a bush in the wastelands;he will not see prosperity when it comes.He will dwell in the parched places of the desert,in a salt land where no one lives.
But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream.It does not fear when heat comes, its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.
Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,
which cannot be shaken but endures forever.
2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so the Lord surrounds his people
both now and forevermore. (Psalm 125:1-2)

Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. As the mountain surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people both now and forevermore. (psalm 125:1-2)Pastor Kolis Arthur- Head Pastor House of Worship Ministry,
Somebody may ask, what is the VINE? For there are many Christians who do not know the meaning of the vine. And there are many Christian who do not know what the BRANCHES also mean. Jesus said I am the vine and we are the branches and the father is the gardener.Pastor Kolis Arthur,
The vine actually means the plant that grows up to become a strong tree and then begin to develop branches. While the BRANCHES is the part that shoot out from the tree. They are similar in appearance; there is no difference in them. There is no tree without branches, they both belong together, and they are inseparable. A branch cannot survive without the tree. The branches took their strength from the vine. When a branch is been cut off from the tree, the branch dies and wither off. And it cannot be fixing back to the tree.
Spiritually, Christ is the vine and the tree of our life. Our strength comes from him, our wisdom and knowledge comes through him. And without Christ, our life becomes a meaningless life. We are confused and depressed and frustrated every day. But when we abide in Christ Jesus, God the father works in our life his righteousness and our life becomes productive and effective. God cut out everything in us that would not bring peace and joy into our life. When we remain in the Lord, God prunes our life and make it grow. So that we may live a righteous life that God has ordain for us. He would cut off everything in our life that does not allow us to be what He wants us to be. It may be anger, or jealousy, hatred, bitterness etc.
But before God would do all these for us, we must remain in Christ.
And as you remain in Christ, the Holy Spirit continues to work in your life and transform your life for the glory of the Lord.
Remain in Christ.
