John 15:1-11: Always Improving (Sean Nolan)
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 Every branch in me that does not produce fruit he removes, and he prunes every branch that produces fruit so that it will produce more fruit. 3 You are already cleanbecause of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, and I in you. Just as a branch is unable to produce fruit by itself unless it remains on the vine, neither can you unless you remain in me. 5 I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in me and I in him produces much fruit,because you can do nothing without me. 6 If anyone does not remain in me, he is thrown aside like a branch and he withers. They gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you want and it will be done for you. 8 My Father is glorified by this: that you produce much fruit and prove to be my disciples. 9 “As the Father has loved me, I have also loved you. Remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 “I have told you these things so that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete.

Just one thing: As citizens of heaven, live your life worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or am absent, I will hear about you that you are standing firm in one spirit, in one accord, contending together for the faith of the gospel
We wanted to recommend the following options for Bible reading plans in 2023. We know that having a community really helps to see these types of commitments through so if we can help you find a buddy (or 2 or 3 or 4 etc.) to spur you on for reading Scripture this year, please let us know.
The following list includes various options and plans that are worth considering:
–Navigators 5x5x5 (5 mins a day, 5 days a week)
–1 Year/4 Streams (M’Cheyne) Plan
–Do-It-Yourself Bible Reading Plan Generator
