Have you seen Juicy Juice's latest commercial? This is their lil jingle - The happy comes straight from the fruit. That is so awesome!! As soon as I saw that while making a pic stitch and waiting for my Instagram Image to be ready to export to my photo album, I immediately thought of John 15.
I actually spent much of one year about 14 years ago in that chapter of the Bible until it became a significant part of my spiritual DNA. John 15 is all about how God wants us to bear fruit and how the only way that is going to happen is if we stay "connected to The Vine" .
"If you abide in Me and I abide in you..."
"I am The Vine and you are the branches..."
Those are just a couple of teasers to entice you to connect to the vine yourself and see for yourself just how true Juicy Juice's jungle is!
God is love and when we abide in love, love abides in us. All the rest of the fruit of the spirit flows out of love. Joy is one of the fruit that is suppose to grow and flourish on the branch that's connected to the main vine filled with joy. In other words joy in our lives, on our faces and bursting out from our hearts to others' becomes the result of us being connected to the fruit source, God!!
So guess what, Juicy Juice is EXACTLY right! The happy comes straight from the fruit! Happy means to enjoy your joy. Go ahead! Be fruity and be happy!
Happy Monday! Thinking I may go find a Juicy Juice.
