- “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 can do nothing” – John 15:5
As believers, we are co-labourers with God. We need God in the business and God needs us, but we need God more than He needs us. May the grace to make ourselves more available in partnership be given to us as we study at His feet in Jesus’ Name.
THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE VINE AND THE BRANCHES
God is the vine and we are the branches. The vine needs the branches and the branches need the vine more. You need God and God needs you, but you need God more than He needs you. God is the Creator of Heaven and the Earth. God can do well without you but without God you can do nothing – John 15:5. God, in His supremacy, with all His power and might, is faithful in playing His part and in the keeping of His covenant – Num. 23 : 19; Ps. 62:11.
So, for you to enjoy the maximum benefit of the relationship, you must be:
1. Saved – John 3 : 3 – 5.
2. Faithful – Heb . 11: 6.
3. Holy – Heb. 12:14.
4. Obedient – Is. 1:19.
5. A cheerful giver – 2 Cor. 9: 7.
THE ROLE OF THE HUSBAND AND THE WIFE IN PARTNERSHIP
God instituted marriage for a purpose but it takes the effort of both the man and the woman for the marriage to work. Both of them must work towards a common goal. An excellent example is procreation. This is virtually impossible except a man and a woman come together for this common purpose. Then, God will now shower His blessings on them – Gen. 1:22; 1 Cor. 3: 6; Amos 3:3.
He is the human head of the family – Eph. 5: 25-33.
He must be able to rule his family well – Col. 3:20.
He must love his wife- Eph. 5 : 25.
He is the priest of the family. He must establish and direct the family altar – Eph. 6:4; Col. 3:20-21.
She must be a good help meet to her husband – Eph. 5:22-24.
She must love and respect her husband.
She must be submissive to her husband.
She must adorn herself with holiness and sobriety.
In partnership, there is need for team work with one goal, one vision and one purpose since both the husband and the wife are God’s representatives on earth. The day of accountability is coming, so, they must sacrifice everything possible to keep the relationship together in unity of purpose and with one spirit, all to the glory of God and their own blessing.
- God’s order for the Christian home is clear enough.
- Homes turned to Christ are redeemed from every curse and become a blessed one.
- Are you a virtuous mother or wife?
- Do not neglect discipline in your home.
- Let every member of the home, including servants, be alert to their responsibilities.
- God will not spare parents who fail to correct their children who err.
- Let us take a cue from Lois and Eunice as parents.
