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

Welcome Friends,

VineWords: Devotions and More is a website dedicated to providing you, our reader, with devotions and other writings that will help you to deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ, The True Vine. 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 at VineWords

Our key verse is John 15:1, 4, 5 and this is our inspiration for everything that happens here at VineWords. We desire to help you draw closer to Jesus Christ, The True Vine, and we look forward to serving you a banquet from God’s Word.

Our prayer is that VineWords will be a site you come to often as a respite from the busyness of everyday life. So, pull up a chair, scooch up to your computer screen or mobile device, and dine.

Writers are taught the principle, “Show; don’t tell.” We apply this concept by writing parable as well as testimony devotions. The aim of each story is to highlight a scriptural truth in a way that will create a remembrance. Although some of the parable devotions are fiction, most have been inspired by real individuals. There are also testimony devotions. The genre is noted if it is fiction. Some names have been changed, even on the true stories, to protect identities. We hope all of these devotions will linger in your spirit and deepen your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

If you want to choose to view only a certain category, see the listing below. For devotions in Spanish, please go to Hispanic tab. You can also go to the search bar and enter: the blogger’s name, the devotion title, or the topic.

3-Minute Devotions

For your busy lifestyle, the VineWords 3-Minute Devotions category may be just what you need to fuel your morning, or as a mid-morning or late evening “snack.” These devotions are abbreviated versions of other devotions/articles on the site. We try to keep the word count to under 400. Enjoy!


In this section you will find VineWords Devotions for your enjoyment. We respect your time by keeping the length to around 400 to 600 words. Most of the parables (fiction) are in this section, as well as real life testimonies. We hope you will find this useful for your morning or evening devotion time.


Our VineWords Contributors have been selected because of their love of the Lord Jesus and their message. Word count varies with each individual blogger, as does his/her writing style.

Hispanic Blog

Pastor/Missionary Victor Marcos translates our VineWords devotions into Spanish. You can read his full bio under the Meet Our Contributors page. If you know of anyone whose native language is Spanish, please invite them to join the VineWords family.


Jesus heals, saves, and is the most wonderful person who ever lived, and He is alive today. We want to celebrate Him! Therefore, we have added a VineWords Testimonies section to the blog to do just that. We pray these testimonies  will encourage you to believe that God’s mighty Word is as relevant today as it has always been.  We invite you to share your testimony in the comments section to encourage other readers.


For that entry that just doesn’t fit the above categories, you will find it in the VineWords Potpourri section. 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.
