Abide – v2

A simple command
to abide in Christ
dead outside
alive in the vine

Alive in Christ
fed by his waters
connected to God
alive for His glory

bearing fruit
fruit of the Spirit
loving as Christ loves
sowing seeds of God’s kingdom

to reap a harvest
a bounty, a purpose
a welling up of joy
through these gifts of the Spirit
