Glorifying the True Vine, Jesus Christ. Bearing fruit through our connection with Him.
I am the true vine… you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him,
bears much fruit: for without Me you can do nothing.
John 15:1a, 4a, 5 NKJV
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 prayer is that VineWords will be a site you can frequent as a respite from the busyness of everyday life.
We pray VineWords will serve as a safe haven where you can leave the troubles of this world behind, and spend time drawing closer to Jesus Christ, The True Vine. Our key verse is John 15:1, 4, 5 and our inspiration, and this serves as our anchor as we pen the devotions, articles, Bible studies, and poems. Glorifying Jesus Christ in a way that draws you, the reader, closer to Him is our goal.
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
We have included on our site poems for your reading pleasure. All are geared towards drawing you closer to God, and as they are short, this is a great “snack” for you to enjoy, and is usually the shortest read time, at approximately two minutes.
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!
This section is useful to aide you in your morning or evening devotion times, and this is the bulk of the material found on VineWords. The average word count is 600 to 800 words, so these devotions can be read in under five minutes.
MARRIAGE AND FAMILY
We are dedicated to serving your needs to strengthen your marriages and families with short articles on this important topic. Areas covered include: marriage from a man’s perspective, marriage from a woman’s perspective, single parenting, parenting, ministering to the special needs child, devotional stories about marriages, and other writings. Read time varies, with a six-minute average read time.
Do you have an extra two or three minutes and you’re itching for an in-depth study of the Word? Several of our writers are seasoned Bible study teachers, so if you want a scholarly, in-depth, but short Bible study read, this section is tailored just for you. Check out these entries when you are wanting to go deeper in your study of the Word. Nibble on a nugget that will stay with you. Read time is seven to eight minutes.
For that entry that just doesn’t fit the above categories, you will find it in Potpourri. Here you will find a “potpourri” of writings including testimonies, author spotlights, etcetera. Have fun reading these marvelous miscellaneous musings from the writer’s keyboard.
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 encouraging our Hispanic readers to follow the Lord Jesus Christ with a whole heart.
