"Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing"
(John 15: 4-5)
The central concern of a Stephen Minister is to pay constant attention to our relationship with Jesus Christ. We do this always trusting that Jesus created that relationship and will maintain it. As long as we keep in constant touch with Jesus, the Holy Spirit will be able to use our training, knowledge, faith, love, and skills to God's glory and to accomplish what is best in the life of our Care Receiver.
