I am the vine, ye are the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him,

the same beareth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

John 15:4a, 5 KJV

Glorifying the True Vine, Jesus Christ; bearing fruit through our connection with Him.

Welcome to VineWords! Whether you are a seeker, a new believer, or you have served the Lord for a long time, there is something you can benefit from. Our key verse is John 15:1, 4, 5 and our inspiration. It is our hope that the various devotions and Bible studies will help you to grow in your faith.

Because Jesus used parables as a memorable teaching tool, we permit fictional devotions on this site. If it is fiction, we note the genre. Names are changed on most of the devotions in either genre, and occasionally in the Bible studies.

Our prayer is that VineWords will be a site you will come to often because you find it to be a respite from the busyness of everyday life. We pray you will draw closer to Jesus Christ, The True Vine, as you do so. We look forward to serving you a banquet from God’s Word. So, pull up a chair, scooch up to your computer screen or mobile device, and dine.

VineWords; Devotions and More






3-Minute Devotions

For your busy lifestyle, the 3-Minute Devotions category may be just what you need to fuel your morning, or as a “snack.” We try to keep the word count to around 400. Enjoy!


We hope you will find this section useful for your morning or evening devotion time. These are where you will find most of our Contributors’ devotions.  Our Contributors have been selected because of their love of  Jesus Christ, and their messages. Word count varies with each individual blogger, as does his/her writing style.


For that entry that just doesn’t fit the above categories, you will find it in Potpourri. Here you will find author interviews, articles, children’s stories, and a “potpourri” of other writings. Have fun reading  these marvelous miscellaneous musings from the writer’s keyboard.


Several of our devotion writers are seasoned Bible study teachers. If you want a scholarly, in-depth, but short read, this is the section you’ll want to check. Each teacher has his/her own unique style, so check these entries out when you are wanting to go deeper in the Word of God.


In this section, Pastor/Missionary Victor Marcos translates our devotions. He also writes messages in Spanish for the Hispanic readers.

If you know  anyone whose native language is Spanish, please invite them to join the VineWords family. This entire section is devoted to our Hispanic readers.
