It’s All About Love! ~ September 24

It’s All About Love!

Get in it, and stay in it!

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.”    John 15:9

These words Jesus spoke seem so simple. In Chapter 15 of the New Testament book of John, Jesus tells the disciples—and us—He is the vine, and they/we are the branches. As with an actual plant, the branches, and thus we, cannot bear fruit if they are not attached to the vine. The connection—the vine—when it comes to Jesus and us is love.

We must remain in His love in order to fulfill our part of God’s plan and bear fruit. If we do not stay in His love, our actions are merely motions and accomplish nothing. I believe this goes back to the “works” thing; we can “do” all kinds of good things, but those good things will gain us nothing, not even self-satisfaction, unless we do them with God’s love in our hearts. When we make God our first, and truthfully our only priority, we will be operating as an extension of Him and the things we do will accomplish His will.

It’s all about love. Get in it and stay in it!

    No matter what we say or do, if it is without God’s love, then we are as a “sounding gong”.
