Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 261

  1. “No branch can bear fruit by itself” (John 15:4).

Jesus is the Source of life–of all the enduring fruit we could possibly produce. It is possible to produce fruit without Him, but that fruit doesn’t remain. Many, today, build great edifices or expand remarkable ministries only to see their efforts dwindle the minute they stop giving every ounce of their strength. They built in the name of Jesus but not in the power or with the direction of Jesus. They didn’t infuse themselves with His life. That’s how the day of judgment will reveal some who did great works in His name, but somehow Jesus didn’t know them. When we build for ourselves, we build by ourselves.

    Thank you for this message. I hear people all the time say “how will this benefit me. This is a reminder to me that EVERYTHING I do is to benefit and glorify my Abba Daddy and that I am the hands and feet of Jesus. Now Lord help me to leave a legacy of Jesus Christ to all I come in contact with that they will remember YOU even after I am gone.
