Camp Covecrest // December 18 - 21
He takes away every branch in me that does not bear fruit, and every one that does he prunes so that it bears more fruit.
The Lord desires more fruitfulness for you- it's not always about rooting out sin or about doing more for the Lord. Praise and worship, prayer teams, dynamic talks, reconciliation and spiritual direction are what make john 15 the #bestretreatever
Remain in me as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me.
Without Him you can do nothing; so what have you been doing without Him? Spend four days remembering how to surrender self-reliance and independence. Reconnect and recommit to the Lord and to the community you’ve found in summer missions.
By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.
Remember how to love because you have been so loved. Remember how to forgive because you have been so forgiven. Remember how to give because you have received. Discipleship is the fruit that lasts beyond our time as a summer missionary. Remember how to create disciples because you have been one.
