Maybe you’ve found recently that you are getting more irritable with people. Or you’re feeling more overwhelmed and defeated by the challenges that life is throwing your way. Or you’re spending more time scanning social media than you are connecting with God in prayer. Even doing things your way isn’t working out the way you think it should.

If you’re feeling discouraged, frustrated, and worn out, it’s a good indication that something in your life is out of sync. Fortunately, there is a solution to this problem found in Scripture. In John 15:5, Jesus tells his followers, "I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can’t do anything." Instead of going it alone in this life, we are to stay connected to him.

In this video Bible study, pastor Kyle Idleman reveals how we can actually do that by:

  • Seeking out greater rest, depth, and connection in our lives
  • Recognizing that what we can’t do makes room for what God can do
  • Finding freedom from the pressures of performance and production
  • Stepping out of loneliness and isolation even when it feels scary
  • Getting rid of the distractions that keep us disconnected from Christ

In the end, Kyle reveals that the fruit of your life will have nothing to do with your accomplishments and everything to do with your connections. No matter what happens in this world, the greatest joy comes from staying close to the God who stays close to you.
