Cooperating With God

“I am the vine; you are the branches” (John 15:5a)

It doesn’t sound right to say we “cooperate” with God. We certainly don’t operate equally.

No religious activity, is in and of itself, life-giving. We cannot produce any genuine spiritual fruit on our own; He makes that clear when He says, “apart from Me you can do nothing.”

Our job is to abide. Not produce, abide.

“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.” (John 15:7)

How do we abide?

We cooperate with God.

We cooperate with His work in our lives — so He can demonstrate His life in our work.
