Grafted to God's Vine




We know that grafting or graft is a common term in planting. Grafting is a horticultural technique whereby tissues from one plant are inserted into those of another so that the two sets of vascular tissues may join together.

Did you know that we are also grafted in God’s branch? Let us read the scripture below:

17 But some of these branches from Abraham’s tree—some of the people of Israel—have been broken off. And you Gentiles, who were branches from a wild olive tree, have been grafted in. So now you also receive the blessing God has promised Abraham and his children, sharing in the rich nourishment from the root of God’s special olive tree. 18 But you must not brag about being grafted in to replace the branches that were broken off. You are just a branch, not the root. 19 “Well,” you may say, “those branches were broken off to make room for me.”20 Yes, but remember—those branches were broken off because they didn’t believe in Christ, and you are there because you do believe. So don’t think highly of yourself, but fear what could happen. 21 For if God did not spare the original branches, he won’t spare you either.
(Romans 11:17-21, NLT)

We are grafted in replace of the original branches which are the Jews. Though we are grafted as a replacement, we are favored and blessed to experience the same blessing, favor and grace that the vine has. But of course, as a grafted branch, we don’t have anything to boast about to the vine and to the grafter. If the grafter has the guts to cut-off the original branch, he can also do that to us.

Now, all we have to do is to enjoy being grafted to the vine. As a grafted branch, we must also do the things we have to do and that is sharing the good news and winning souls for Him for us to be more fruitful.

This is like false advertising when you put this on Pinterest. Sigh.
