You did not choose me, but I chose you (John 15:16).
Grafting requires time, patience, and careful management. Grape vines are grafted to change varieties, or to help plants resist pests and withstand cold weather.
This process pictures our relationship with God in his vineyard. By an act of redeeming grace, the gardener attached us to the vine -- his son, Jesus Christ. Simple? Yes, but not cheap. Jesus paid the ultimate price for our redemption -- death on the cross.
Have you been grafted into the true vine? If you have, then what are you doing to reflect the life of Jesus today? How do I show the world that the love of Jesus resides in my heart? This is the question that we have to answer each and every day.
Thought for the Day: Grafting is an act of redeeming grace.
