‘Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing…’ (John 15: 5-6)
Ho often do we find ourselves in the position whereby we feel as if we’re getting nowhere with whatever it is we have set out to do. Despite our good intentions and best efforts still we feel as if no progress whatsoever is being made. at times like this we need to reflect on these words from John. All too often we turn to the Lord only when we feel as if we have no other option, but John reminds us here that we should we turning to the Lord first – apart from me you can do nothing.
