Abide in Me

Abide in me, and I in you.

There are many lessons in John 15, as is the case in all of Jesus’ teaching.  Something came to me in such a profound way today from it.  It was something I’ve been struggling with for several months now.  I felt I had a really good understanding of what the Lord was trying to teach me, yet there seemed to be something missing.  Like I wasn’t quite done with it yet.  Today…I got it, and I wanted to share it with you, because that’s what I do.  I want everyone to know how good our God is, and I know there is someone somewhere who can relate to my experience.  So…let me back up just a bit.

Human Nature

It is a natural response to want to defend yourself.  I don’t mean physically, like from a shark attack (good luck with that), or with a shield and sword.  I’m talking about defending your character, your reputation, your religion, your political ideology, your sense of direction.
