“Yes, I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in me and I in him shall produce a large crop of fruit. For apart from me you can’t do a thing. (John 15:5 TLB)
O my precious God, I recognise my spiritual poverty, I know I have to run to the foot of Your cross. I can identify with the man who beat his chest, crying out, “God, have mercy on me, a sinner.” I have gratefully accepted Your payment for my sins. You, want me to continue to remain poor in spirit. You will only fill empty hands. Every day I shall come to You with my empty hands and open heart. You will fill both with treasures from heaven.
You are the Vine; and I am a branch. Whoever lives in You, You; will live in them and shall produce a large crop of fruit. For apart from You I can't do a thing. It is good to know I live with God, knowing with certainty He is dwelling and living in me. I bring Him all the praise, glory, thanksgiving, and adoration and love Him with all my heart, mind, body, spirit, soul, forever and always through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.
