You are already clean because of the Word I have spoken to you. John 15:3
Jesus tells us that He Himself is the Real Vine and God the Father is the Farmer. We, His children are the branches.
Any farmer understands the importance of pruning and grafting for plants. When a good gardener finds a plant that may be injured, damaged or weak, he doesn’t just write it off. He finds a plant or tree with a strong root system and high quality produce. He then grafts this weaker plant onto the strong one.
By this technique the tissues of the plants merge into each other helping the weaker plant to now tap into the system of the strong plant and grow better. This method even allows the exchange of DNA molecules between the two plants.
This is precisely what happens with us when we accept the Lord Jesus into our lives, abiding in Him and His Word. All of our weaknesses are overcome because of His Holy Spirit and His Word flowing through us. We are strengthened because of being connected to Him. In fact, His blood acts as a cleanser over our sins. And when we submit to the edification and chastisement through the Word, we are automatically pruned. We need to tap into the Word for our nutrition, strength, health and healing.
How awesome it is to think that even our DNA can be changed when we get our daily bread from the Lord Himself. What a privilege it is then, to be grafted on to the Lord and to daily feed ourselves of His Word.
