Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. (John 15:4)
If a limb is missing we are not fully functional or capable of performing a task as we would with both limbs. However, some may say that you can perform equally but if all were missing, how would one function as a unit? For the sake of our mind and soul, in the same regard, you cannot function as a whole unless your mind tells your body to do so. With regard to Christ, we can do nothing on our own. We all function with him as a complete product. For if pieces are missing, it will result in a malfunction. Remaining in the presence of Christ and not detaching ourselves, brings about full capability and use of all that we are made of spiritually. Today, I challenge you to remain and stay attached to the tree which is rooted in Christ Jesus.
