"Just as the Father has loved Me, I have loved you, abide in My love."
"Remain in Me and I will remain in you."
This is the most beautiful invitation of love we will ever receive. If we choose to abide in His love we will bear fruit for His glory. His glory is His love. We cannot produce this fruit without abiding in the Vine. Jesus said,
Apart from Me you can do nothing." (5)
I am very aware this is true in my life. I can produce a lot of religious, dead works, but I cannot produce the fruit of the Spirit which begins in His love from abiding, or staying attached to the Vine.
Let us read John 15 this morning, and hear the heart of Jesus to His own. If you don’t completely belong to Him this morning you can by simply praying heart to heart to our wonderful Savior. Why would we want to remain or abide anywhere else? It is a love far superior to any other.
In His love.
Masterpiece Fitness had it’s Greatest Achiever Luncheon yesterday at Old North State Winery in Mt Airy, NC. Eleanor Dick was our recipient. Even though this entails progression with weight loss, healthy food choices, and meeting many physical challenges, the greatest achievement of all is seeing my clients learning to abide in the love of Christ. Congratulations to Eleanor for exemplifying all!
