Singing Among the Branches

St. John 15:1-12
I live in Tennessee and there is a very picturesque view off my deck. Hills and trees abound here, and in these trees live a myriad of birds! I am compelled to grab my binoculars and start bird watching! Birds really seem to especially sing out on clear, spring mornings. I am intrigued as I watch them go from branch to branch singing their special bird songs. What kind of songs do you suppose they are singing?

I don’t think that the songs of the bird's and our songs are really that much different. We are both created to exhort one another; warn each other; show forth the praises of our God. We are both designed to spread the good news, summed up beautifully in a familiar children’s prayer, “God is good; God is great; Let us thank Him for…..”

As Christians, we too sing among the branches. Jesus said that He is the Vine and we are the branches. If we tell others that we are connected to Jesus they should be hearing us sing songs of rejoicing; songs of salvation.

Just as the communion and singing of the bird’s causes me to watch them, the world should be drawn in to watch the communion we have amongst ourselves and to hear our songs. They will want to know the reason for our singing. We then can point them to the true vine, Jesus Christ, Who is the inspiration for all of the melodic messages of our hearts.

Thought
Jesus Christ is the rejoicing of our hearts, He is our Salvation, and He is our Song. Let us sing that loud and clear, so the whole world will hear.
