Do it for the Vine!

Fruit-of-the-Vine

Recently a cute video showing a precious little girl who “does it for the vine” by dancing went viral. She is adorable, sassy and sweetly infectious. You cannot help but watch her with a smile on your face & laughter in your soul… The video actually inspired me to think about our lives & that we should also “do it for the Vine”. The Vine I am speaking of is Jesus. Today begins the season of Lent.  Lent is a time when many Christians prepare for Resurrection Sunday by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline. The purpose is to set aside time for reflection on Jesus Christ – his suffering and his sacrifice, his life, death, burial and resurrection. We “do it for the Vine”, by becoming more Christlike. In return, we bear good fruit. While this may sound complicated, it’s actually quite simple to put into practice.

Try implementing some of the challenges below, (I know I am going to try). Not only will your own heart, soul, mind & spirit benefit, others will too. Plus, you just might go viral!  So, go ahead and do it for the Vine!

Lent Season Challenge – What will You Give?

If we only Do what we’ve always Done,
We’ll Get what we have always Received!!
Instead of saying What we will “Give Up” in the next 40 Days,
Let’s dare to be different and focus on What we will “Give”.
Our Savior never gave up on Calvary – Truth be told HE only Gave that we might Have!
In that Spirit, What will you give in the next 40 Days?
More Love in all of Your Relationships
More Time and Intention to Your Dreams & Goals
More Focus on Mind, Body & Soul
More Time and/or Treasures to a Charity
More Time for Literacy/Reading in lieu of the fantasy of Reality TV
More Study of the WORD
More encouragement to Young Boys with No definition of Manhood
More encouragement to Young Girls with No definition of Womanhood
More time for Community Service or Volunteer Work

I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener – John 15:1
