Apart from Jesus we can do nothing

Jesus attributed certain words in the Scriptures, such as: “I am the true vine” “I am the light” “I am the bread”, etc. And Jesus is everything and there is no one or anything like Him. All our hopes are in Jesus, He is the engine of our lives. Without Jesus we can do nothing, because if we breathe, we talk, we work, we drink a glass of water, everything we do, we owe it to His mercy and great love and we must feel happy on this day for it.

The Bible says:

4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

5 “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.

John 15:4-5

Jesus tells us: “Abide in me”. And we must pay close attention to these words, since Jesus is not asking us for a favor, He is giving us the command that we should abide in Him and He also tells us that He remains in us. Staying in Jesus is the sign that we are bearing enough fruit and a clear example that we are true believers.

The second thing is that we can not bear fruit for ourselves, we can not pretend to live an anthropocentric Christianity, we must live a Christianity dictated by the Word of God, guided by God, fully understanding that only God can show us in a true way and that we can not walk without Him.

Brothers, we have been called to bear much fruit, to work hard for the Lord, to walk, to live, to breathe for God. Our tiny lives hide in God and we must always understand that, that He is the vine and we are the branches, and outside of Christ we can do nothing.

    Apart from Jesus we can do nothing
    ======================
    We must not forget that it is the Father in Heaven that has sent us his most beloved Son Jesus, a saviour for all that believe in Him; and so we all must honor Jesus as we honor the Father who sent Him. These are words from John 5:23:
    “That all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honors not the Son honors not the Father which has sent him.”.

    It is not something without value to consider the very important role that Jesus has in the plan of the Father God for the salvation of his people. Jesus is all for all of us that depend on Him, if we want to enter in His kingdom.

    If we want to live and bear good fruits for the glory of the Father, we cannot but be joined to Jesus. As the branch of a vine has to receive the power that it needs to bear grapes, so the children of God need Jesus to live and bear good fruits.

    When the branch of a vine becomes dry, it is cut it and put into the fire; so we, without Jesus, shall be put into the fire of Hell, in a fire which shall never be extinguished, suffering there in punishment for our sins, eternally separate from the sweet and peaceful presence of God.

    It is good for men and women of this world to be joined to Jesus and believe on his person so that they all have life and bear fruits of salvation.

    Jesus saId:
    “Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
    “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.” John 15:4-5

    Thank you, Heavenly Father, that you have revealed Jesus to us to believe and live for Him and your Glory.
