It’s all about Jesus.

I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
John 15:5

It’s all about Jesus.

If there is one thing I’ve learned over the past couple weeks of dealing with sickness and praying for so many in our church family who are hurting it is that above all else we need Jesus

Jesus calls us into intimate fellowship with Him. We are called to seek Him above all else. We are called to abide with Him. He is standing at the door of your heart knocking, waiting for you to allow Him in.

We can survive without a lot of things, but we cannot survive without God. After performing His greatest miracle of feeding the 5000 Jesus begins to teach the massive multitude that He was the Bread of Life (John 6:48.) Jesus says in John 5:35, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to Me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in Me shall never thirst.”

Our enemy and the cares of this life will try to separate you from the only One who gives abundant life. The devil is going to try to discourage you every day. But don’t let it get you down. Just remember he’s a liar.

Put Jesus first this weekend and meditate on Psalm 27:5,6… 
For he will conceal me there when troubles come;
he will hide me in his sanctuary.
He will place me out of reach on a high rock.
Then I will hold my head high
above my enemies who surround me.
At his sanctuary I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy,
singing and praising the lord with music.
