Firstly, let’s be the dads who know where our help comes from. Therefore, let’s be the dads who choose to stay with Jesus and allow Him to be our source and remain connected to Him. Choose to abide in Jesus!

Today’s Verse of the Day:

Remain in Me, and I [will remain] in you. Just as no branch can bear fruit by itself without remaining in the vine, neither can you [bear fruit, producing evidence of your faith] unless you remain in Me.

John 15:4 AMP

First, abide, remain in Jesus, and then He will remain in you. Second, abide, just as the branches bear fruit because they stay connected to the vine, let’s remain connected to Jesus! Finally, abide, so that by remaining connected to Jesus, we get filled and His Spirit flows through us in order to produce the fruit of the Spirit that is evidence of our faith!

Abide in Jesus and produce fruit of the Spirit.

‘But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. ‘ Galatians 5:22-23

Therefore, let’s reflect on today’s verse of the day and how we can apply this as dads to our lives.
