    However, what things were gain to me, these have I counted loss for Christ. Yes most assuredly, and I count all things to be loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus, my Lord, for whom I suffered the loss of all things, and count them nothing but refuse, that I may gain Christ and be...

    For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises up again; But the wicked are overthrown by calamity. Proverbs 24:16 WEBI felt disgusted with myself because I had tried so hard, but in a moment of weakness returned to my old habits. Now like an injured animal, I just wanted to be left alone. Soon I ...

    Jesus answered him, 'Simon, I have something to tell you.' He said, 'Teacher, say on.' A certain lender had two debtors. The one owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. When they couldn't pay, he forgave them both. Which of them therefore will love him most?' Simon answered, 'He, I suppose, ...

Vines and Branches

  • Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can't bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me. I am the vine. You are the branches. He who remains in me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:4 WEB

    The ministry of Jesus, from the first recorded miracle of turning water into wine at the wedding in Cana of Galilee, until His resurrection, was about three and a half years. During that time, Jesus changed the world that He lived in. He took away the sins of the universe, and if we let Him, He will take away ours.

    We labor each day for so many things when in reality, if we just get in tune with Him, we would accomplish so much more and it would be more fulfilling as well. Like Mary sitting at the feet of Jesus while Martha labored in the kitchen, sometimes we just need to stop, sit, and listen. Too often though, we are like Martha, working hard at making sandwiches that no one ordered, and then getting tired and frustrated when they don't seem to appreciate it.

    Jesus is the Vine, we are the branches, and it is our connection with Him that makes our own life bear fruit. I find that when I spend some quiet time with the Lord before I start my day, pray for a few minutes, read a little scripture and listen, that my day goes so much better. It reminds me of why I am doing this, and that I am not just struggling alone in this life. After a few minutes alone with the Lord, I am much stronger.

    Always include the Lord in Your day. Remember that without Him, you can do nothing of lasting value. Taking just ten minutes to stop, pray, and listen, can change your life, those around you, and the world itself.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please strengthen me today and cover me with Your presence. Draw my heart to You Lord and let me see through Your eyes. Use me and make my life count for Your kingdom, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people" (Ephesians 6:18).

Heavenly Father I always thank You everyday and ask that You walk and lead us through Your word, without You I'm nothing because at times there's weaknesses in us. Show us the way oh Lord, in Jesus name I pray. Amen. Without You we are nothing.
