An Absolute

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.” I am sure you are familiar with this passage from the gospel of John, but one phrase simply jumped out at me this morning, “…..apart from me you can do nothing!”…… Now that’s sobering for us all. As I think of my life and all its bevy of blessings, I realize all my good deeds….all those wonderful warm fuzzies of doing good…all of it amounted to nothing if I left My Lord out of it. That doesn’t leave much, donchaknow. Really. How about you? OUCH!, right? That puts a lot more on my plate than ever imagined. And that’s what I get from MY box of chocolates. AMEN
