Becoming like Christ

Becoming like Christ

Becoming like Christ

This piece was created through personal inspiration from a scripture, which you can read below.

John 15:5
“’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.”

Here we see a person who is connected to a tree and through that connection he/she is becoming like that tree. The person has become so much like this tree that their right hand has become small branches and leaves. This is what it means to abide, to conform to, or to obey. So it is as we abide in Christ that we become like Him and through Him we can bear fruit. By fruit I mean a life that shows these qualities from Galatians 5:22-23: “ But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. ”
